In one of my favorite poems, Nikki Giovanni tells us "black love is black wealth." And it is fitting that the day set aside specially for us to celebrate our romantic love falls right in the middle of Black History Month.

In a world that tells us that our love is dead, Ebony is putting it front and center with three different covers for the February 2014 issue. Covers feature gospel music stars David and Tamela Mann, NBA player Carmelo Anthony and his tv host wife LaLa and megastars Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey.
