Redd Foxx and Nina Simone chilling in 1959. They were shot by G. Marshall Wilson (1906-1998), who was a staff photographer for EBONY for 33 years. In other news, this photo will be hanging on my wall in the near future…

Claressa “T-Rex” Shields, subject of the Kickstarter-funded documentary T.Rex, just won an Olympic gold medal. That’s incredible! (Also: Our entire staff was watching. Won’t lie, more than one of us teared up.)
17 years old. She’s a junior in high school. And, more importantly, the first ever female olympic boxing champ. Think about that. At 17 years old, this girl is the best female boxer in the world. And she can’t even drive past midnight yet. Unbelievable achievement. Congratulations, Claressa. You earned that gold medal with every punch you threw.
