Chicago native Jennifer Jackson became the FIRST Black Playboy Playmate in 1965 when she was 19 years old, but not on the cover.  The 5-foot-8 bunny was also the FIRST Black model to be featured in an ad for Lady Clairol, the FIRST Black woman to model for Avon cosmetics and Kool cigarettes. Both of the ads were published in Ebony magazine. In that same year, Jackson became the face of the Ebony Fashion Fair.
