Obamas’ Essence


The Obama family has been immortalized on every newspaper, book, screensaver, t-shirt, lunchbox, you name it, there’s an image of them on it.  But, you won’t see a picture more definitively elegant and just plain breathtaking as the one you will see of Michelle LaVaughn Robinson-Obama on the cover of Essence in January.  Oh yeah, and Barack isn’t hard on the eyes either.

The special edition will feature 56-pages of tribute to the first family from a star studded contributor list that is diverse and historical in itself. 

The roster of contributors include: Ruby Dee, Bill Cosby, Spike Lee, Maya Angelou, Chris Rock, Sonia Sanchez and many more. 

The issue will also include:  a thorough timeline of the President from childhood to present; a perspective from Hannah Jane Hurdle-Tommey, the last surviving child of Andrew Jackson Hurdle (who was enslaved for nearly 20 years) who now sees Barack Obama become President in her lifetime; as well as a look at the life ahead for Sasha and Malia by Gwen Ifill.

But all of this is not meant to incite the riot-like behavior we saw on Black Friday.  Be careful out there.  If you don’t see the issue on your rack, surely Essence won’t mind hooking you up with a copy.  Go to essence.com to read more about the issue and maybe subscribe, so you don’t have to risk life or limb to own it.

  1. Mr. & Mrs Obama, are TRULY Heaven sent. They both definitly have a heart of LOVE for themselves and the world. The photos are Just AWESOME! You couldn’t see a more better expression of them as the very First African American man and woman who will have control and power over the WORLD! This is a Blessing for me to see manifest in my lifetime at the age of 52.
    I pray Blessings and Favor upon them and their daughters……..(which are so precious). Sasha and Malia.
