Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama is on the cover of the upcoming June issue of UPTOWN magazine, “the only luxury lifestyle publication targeted at Affluent African Americans (AAA).” It’s the first time the mag has gone with an illustrated cover, commissioning artist Alex Ostroy. The Entertainment Issue drops on June 15th, and features director-activist Spike Lee discussing the “Obama Effect,” claiming that a black president isn’t just symbolic, “Do you know how uplifting it’s going to be for people of color to have someone who looks like them be President of the United States? It changes everything, and it’s not just symbolism.” The issue also includes stories about “Bloggers Behind the Web’s Juiciest Stars,” “72 Hours in Tuscany from behind the wheel of a Bentley,” and the perfect travel guide to African American elitism: “an inside look at popular black summer enclaves in Martha’s Vineyard, Sag Harbor and Hilton Head.”
