Based on the February 2016 cover of EBONY, Valentine’s Day trumped Black History Month. That is, there’s more content on “Black Love” than Black heritage. Like Essence, there are very few BHM advertisements too. Excluding a couple of salutes to EBONY Power 100 and promotions for historical items available in the EBONY Store, you’ll find six legitimate BHM messages from advertisers. The major brands aren’t showing much love for the historical achievements of Blacks.
