Ebony: June 1960 Black Advertising

I've been getting a little overwhelmed with all the insensitivity going on in advertising today, so I thought I'd go back and have a look at simpler times. You know when "skin lightner" was all the rage, smoking with while reading with your kids was common place and relaxing your hair was a good wholesome "Perm!". Ah yes, pre-post racial America... I miss it.

Some of the ads were of a more common fare.
