Michelle Obama Graces Cover of Ebony

Michelle Obama is featured on the cover of the May Ebony, and of course she looks fabulous. Inside the issue, The Huffington Post reports that the First Lady talks to Amy DuBois, Ebony’s Editor-in-Chief, about how she maintains a level head with her crazy life.

Also, since May 13 is Mother’s Day (mark your calendar now!), Mrs. Obama even discusses the ways the family celebrates the holiday and how important her mother is to her. “Anytime I need to go and plop on her couch and just talk, she’s always there,” she told Ebony.

The May issue of Ebony hits newsstands April 17.

Ebony Adds Darhil Crooks As Creative Director

Darhil Crooks has been appointed as the new creative director of Ebony magazine.  Editor-in-chief Amy DuBois made the move official yesterday and is eager to add Crooks’s experience to the magazine:

Darhil’s singular creative vision for the Ebony brand and his tremendous background working at best-in-class magazines will be of great value as we usher in a new era at the publication.

Crooks’s  move to Ebony comes after spending over five years as art director at Esquire and previous career stops at Men’s Journal and Complex magazine.  At Ebony, Crooks will manage the art department and make key decisions on page design and layout.  He will begin work on Jan. 3.
