EBONY Magazine's 25 Coolest Brothers of All Time
While on a Blue Bell ice cream run I happened to see at the checkout counter the August 2008 issue of EBONY magazine. The EBONY editors decided to do a story identifying the 25 coolest brothers of all time (and no, Morris Day didn't make the list).
The copy I bought has Prince on the cover. There are seven other collectors editions of this issue of the magazine that feature Muhammad Ali, Marvin Gaye, Samuel L. Jackson, Jay Z, Denzel Washington, Billy Dee Williams and the potential next president of the United States on the cover.
So since I spilled a few of the names that EBONY finally came up with, here's the full list.
Billy Dee Williams
Sammy Davis, Jr.
Adam Clayton Powell, Jr.
Shawn 'Jay-Z' Carter
Samuel L. Jackson
