EBONY Magazine’s July issue is a summer sizzler as Mrs. Tina Knowles Lawson graces the cover and gives it to readers straight with no chaser in her intimate interview.

The cover celebration was held in Los Angeles, where guests gathered at a lovely Holmby Hills estate in honor of Mama Tina.

Champagne flowed as Knowles-Lawson was joined by EBONY brass, including Linda Johnson Rice, Chairman of Johnson Publishing Company; Desiree Rogers, CEO of Johnson Publishing Company; and Kierna Mayo, Editor-in-Chief of EBONY Magazine.
