Secretary Kerry: “International Women’s Day is more than a moment marked on a calendar. It is a day not just to renew our determination to make the world a more peaceful and prosperous place — but to recognize that a world where opportunities for women grow, is a world where the possibilities for peace, prosperity, and stability grow even more.”

BLACK HISTORY MONTH MAGAZINES: EBONY, 1960s
Ebony was the monthly over-sized African American pop culture and news magazine published by Johnson Publishing. It was founded in 1945. Its covers in the 40s and the 50s tended to focus on fashion, culture, and celebrity; as Ebony moved into the 60s the covers increasingly featured political and social issues of the black community. Ebony had a great set of staff photographers, including Moneta Sleet Jr., G. Marshall Wilson, and Isaac Sutton, who shot many of the covers, and art director Herbert Temple delivered simple, elegant design and some powerful self-illustrated covers as well.
Ebony has historically been not only socially relevant, but they’ve also got a remarkable collection of positive, powerful imagery of women on the cover — not something you see often on the cover of any magazine, not to mention any magazine in the 1960s.
