OMARI HARDWICK is EBONY — perfect - AmNews Curtain Raiser


Friday, June 29, 2018



EBONY magazine releases its July/August issue, featuring OMARI HARDWICK on the cover. In the accompanying exclusive interview, the athlete-turned-actor admits that initially, he almost turned down his starring role in the Starz crime drama Power. Hardwick also dishes on his road to stardom—including odd jobs and homelessness—the help he received from an A-list celebrity and speaking up on Black injustices. “I don’t necessarily know if there’s ever really been a ‘now’ versus ‘then.’ … Sometimes, it still feels like we’re back at the Blacks-only water fountains and not sitting on the stools that we want to in a diner,” says our cover star. 

The Black Hollywood issue also features a glimpse at the new generation of rising stars. In addition, readers will get a serious look at the opioid abuse epidemic among African-Americans; Kerry Washington details her beauty regimen; and we offer suggestions for getting your summer body together and the best grooming products for men before, during and after workouts. “The Black Hollywood issue is the premier showcase for African-American talent in Hollywood. It honors the previously celebrated, the unrecognized and the new and young rising stars, such as our cover feature, the multitalented and multilayered Omari Hardwick,” says EBONY Media Operations Chairman Emeritus Linda Johnson Rice. “This issue also aims to shed light on the opioid drug crisis plaguing Black America.” 

Get the July/August 2018 digital edition of EBONY via Texture, Google Play, Apple iTunes and Kindle June 28, and the print edition on newsstands July 3.
