Inspired by late photographer #GordonParks’ iconic image of Black Panther leader Eldridge Cleaver and Kathleen Neal Cleaver, our summer cover starring artists, collectors and activists @therealswizzz and @aliciakeys pays homage to the power couple’s efforts to preserve Park’s legacy through their impressive acquisition of works from the @gordonparksfoundation. Shot by @jamelshabazz, our cover is the first #SwizzBeatz and #AliciaKeys have posed for together. Like Parks, we believe history is made one image at a time. Stay tuned for more.

Left, @therealswizzz holds Parks’s autobiography “A Choice of Weapons.”
