EBONY magazine....Somewhat shameless self-promotion.

I say it's somewhat because I would link to Courtney's post even if I weren't interviewed for her article on black expats in Rome.

Some of you might recognize fellow Blogger Courtney by the name Coco Cooks or Glamah16. She's a very talented cook, baker, photographer and writer.

This is her first print article for EBONY. Courtney was in Rome for a tribute to her great-uncle, dancer and artist Bob Curtis. The way she writes about her uncle and his legacy is very moving.

I really enjoyed meeting Courtney. I'm excited for her. I hope this article will lead to more writing assignments for her.

EBONY has been going through some major changes lately. It's difficult to update a magazine and yet not alienate a loyal readership.

It will be interesting see what direction the magazine goes in after bringing on Desiree Rogers.

The February issue of EBONY is on newsstands (in America) now. Here is Courtney's POST.

Congrats Courtney!!
