When I was growing up an issue of Ebony magazine was always on the living room table. Always. My
mom must have had a subscription to that thing for 30+ years. She still has that subscription as a matter of fact. I’d venture to guess that many black families have a similar relationship with that great magazine. So, you could imagine how truly humbling it was to be asked to shoot the cover of Ebony magazine. I’ve shot for GQ, Interview, Rolling Stone and all the rest but I knew that in my moms eyes, this was probably the job that made my college tuition worth it ( actually I got a scholarship but you understand what I mean ). Anyway, I was assigned to shoot Chadwick Boseman and the cast of “Get On Up” the James Brown biopic at the legendary Apollo theater. Lots if history there. Lots of opportunity. 
I love the images that were made that day and It was a great honor to do that job. Here are some of the images.

I believe it was Moses who once said: “There is no more difficult undertaking than creating a photography web site”. After months of glorious toil and fantastic tumult the new WWW.KAREEMBLACK.COM is almost ready and should be dropping this week! I am beyond excited to show everyone all the stuff I’ve been up to! Stay fucking tuned!!!!!

ATTENTION!!!!! EMERGENCY!!! EMERGENCIA !!!!

I don’t know if you’ve gotten a chance to pick up the new issue of The Liberty High School Tribune ( or The Tribune for short ) But hurry out and get one! It just came out today and guess who is being featured in a half page, below the fold,  article on page 2 !!!!!!

This is probably one of the coolest things to happen to me! It was also really fun and inspiring to meet the young photographers of Liberty High! I appreciated the hospitality of everyone out there! They even let become a member of the photo club!!! ( honorary… which hopefully means I don’t have to pay the dues )…  I especially want to thank photography teacher, Ms. Tara Ferro for facilitating the entire adventure. It was very cool and I’m humbled to be so prominently featured in the Tribune!
