Black History Month Magazine Covers

Black History Month Magazine Covers

In honor of Black History Month, we've collected a series of publication covers featuring noted African American artists, personalities, and historical events. The covers include artwork and photos by Romare Bearden, Jacob Lawrence, Aaron Douglas, Michael Roberts, Gordon Parks, and Moneta Sleet Jr., and personalities such as Miles Davis, Naomi Sims, Shirley Chisholm, and superhero the Black Panther. There are also a number of "firsts," including the first black male model on the cover of GQ, and the first black model on the cover of Playboy. This collection is being updated daily throughout the month. You can find daily cover updates here.

Please let us know if you've got any covers to add to this collection.
