“Vibrant like Vibranium” – that’s what you’ll see when you look at Ebony magazine’s November/December 2022 issue.
On Wednesday, the publication unveiled its last issue for 2022, themed Forever After, with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever stars Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke and Dominique Thorne on the cover.
The Ebony team describes the collaboration as “an epic shoot” that took six months to create.
“For their cover shoot, the Ebony team evoked imagery that felt both reflective and hopeful as the cast embarked on the continuation of this journey. A sunset backdrop nods to the close of one chapter, while evoking a sense of hope for the future.”

The cover was revealed after the film’s cast was honoured at Ebony’s Power 100 gala held at Milk Studios in Hollywood on Saturday night.
“We want to thank you for breathing life into us — into our beauty, into this world of Wakanda,” Wright said at the event, per Variety.
“I want to thank you for your faithful support in what was a cultural moment of impact and beauty and change. We saw ourselves in ways that we could have never imagined. We saw ourselves for the first time – beautiful, glorious, wonderful – because that’s exactly who we are.”
In celebration of the cover, Nyong’o shared a reel in which she and her castmates attempt to introduce themselves in a behind-the-scenes video.
“We made a whole movie together, but this @ebonymagazine introduction was on another level…” she joked in the caption.
