Ebony magazine unveiled the cover of its latest issue, and the striking image displayed is sure to start some conversations.

The November edition, named the "Family Issue," features a family photo from the Cosby Show with shattered glass squarely over the face of Cliff Huxtable.

This powerful image is meant to comment on Bill Cosby's flailing legacy as over 50 women have come forward with allegations of sexual abuse.

"Now, some three decades later, as Cosby stands accused of sexually assaulting at least 40 women, Black America is left to grapple with his once-unimpeachable legacy," write Goldie Taylor in the cover story.

"If Bill Cosby is finished, what does that mean for Cliff, and the rest of the tribe called Huxtable?"

Ebony magazine commissioned street artist Shepard Fairey (of Obey and HOPE fame) to create artwork of the late Trayvon Martin to accompany a piece in this month's issue.

Fairey writes:

I have followed Trayvon's case closely and I think any compassionate human being can relate to Trayvon as a brother or son and would want to see a thorough investigation into the killing of an unarmed person. In my portrait I wanted to emphasize Trayvon's humanity as well as the public outcry for a just investigation into his death.
