The magazine archives of Ebony covers civil rights, education, entrepreneurship and other social topics with an African-American focus. One notable feature is the annual selection of the “100 most Influential Blacks in America,” featuring entertainment figures, politicians, philanthropists, and entrepreneurs.
During the 1960s, the magazine increasingly covered the Civil Rights Movement. Articles published in the magazine were about political events happening all over the U.S., in which activists protested racial violence and advocated for increasing social mobility for African–Americans across the diaspora. Also published in the magazine was content about the Black Power Movement. Ebony also commemorated historical events that contributed to black citizenship and freedom such as the September 1963 issue that honored the 100 year anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation.
