The 1960 election year marked Ebony’s fifteenth anniversary issue. The magazine had grown to 172 pages, printed more than 800,000 copies, and read by about four million people in some 30 countries such as France, Germany, and Japan. In this chapter, the author reflects on his coverage of the 1960 presidential election that pitted Richard Nixon against John F. Kennedy and in which blacks and civil rights figured prominently.
