    To celebrate its 65th anniversary issue and icons of the past and present, EBONY magazine asked their favorite entertainers to pose in modern-day recreations of those covers for a one-of-a-kind look back at the past.

    Featuring: Regina King (as Eartha Kitt), Mary J. Blige (as Diana Ross), Nia Long (as Dorothy Dandridge), John Legend (as Duke Ellington), Lamman Rucker (as Richard Roundtree), Taraji P. Henson (as Diahann Carroll), Blair Underwood (as Sidney Poitier), Jurnee Smollett (as Lena Horne), Usher Raymond (as Sammy Davis, Jr.), and Samuel L. Jackson (as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.), among others.

    Love this!

Frederick Douglass said he prayed for 20 years and when nothing changed he starting praying with his legs. He started acting on what he wanted to change instead of just praying about it.
Black people can commit to coming together every week for worship but we can’t commit to coming together to plan, organize , and mobilize to better our communities? All that prayer and yet Black people have the worst problems. Prayer isn’t enough. When will we get it?
Many of the problems we face today are ROOTED from oppression. You have systems constantly at work to exploit and destroy black folks globally and we think that all we have to do is pray about it. This type of thinking is part of the reason for lack of advancement for people of the African Diaspora. Before you get upset, unfollow, or attempt to justify why yo ass in church every sunday think about what I am saying with a clear head. Can YOU dedicate one day a week to help fix your community like you do church or the Mosque? Priorities…
Peace!

Indeed, black people can go to church once a week and meet up for service to praise God, but won’t come together to organize programs or even discuss how to improve their community. We must be active in our community to fully be uplifted.
