13053: BHM 2016—EBONY.

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.

Still. That's a pretty eye catching cover.

If I gotta pick between the Black Heritage Month stamp from the USPS or this, I pick this. Good design is going to win every time. USPS sure didn't have it.
