Although we just stepped into the New Year, February will be here before you know it. So, in honor of Black History Month and Valentine’s Day, EBONY magazine is celebrating Black romance with three distinct covers featuring some of Hollywood’s most celebrated Black couples.
Deception actress Meagan Good and her husband DeVon Franklin, the “King of the South” T.I. with his wife Tiny Harris and America’s favorite pastor, Bishop T.D. Jakes and First Lady Serita Jakes all grace the covers for next month.
Since 1993, EBONY has featured high profile African American couples on its covers highlighting their unique stories of love, romance and commitment. Check out each one below along with clips from their interviews:
Bishop T.D. Jakes on marriage: “Marriage requires work and expecting the unexpected.… Don’t let other people design a marriage you can’t live with. Keep other people out your business. Every marriage is different.”
Meagan Good on making it work: “What do I do for him that’s romantic? I try to surprise him whenever he comes to town. I wear nice things…Wink!”
T.I. on happily ever after: “Once I made my mind up that I was going to be committed to this relationship, I started being married then and there.… Since I’ve been married, it’s the same relationship, we’re the same people. We treat each other the same way, and we’re just as happy now as we were before.”
