The front cover header in black and purple type reads: [BLACK / ENTERPRISE / http://www.blackenterprise.com / OCTOBER 1997] and in white type over a purple background: [MONEY MANAGEMENT SPECIAL]. Underneath the header there is a color image of a woman smiling, with a young boy behind her with his arms around her neck, and another young man in front of her, with her proper left hand across his chest. They are all wearing white turtlenecks. Black and purple type down the left side of the front cover reads: [INVESTING / FOR YOUR / FAMILY'S / FUTURE], [Expert / Advice On / How To Grow / Your Money], [Pros & Cons / of Investing Online], and [The Boom In / Black Mutual Funds]. Purple type in the bottom right corner identifies the people on the cover and reads: [Joyce Stone’s / No. 1 investment / objective is providing / for the futures of her / sons Darius and / Ramziddin]. There is a white mailing address sticker with black type, which is partially blacked out, positioned upside down in the bottom left corner. The interior pages, 167 in total, are off-white paper with black type, and both black-and-white and color images and drawings. The contents of the magazine include economic articles and advertisements. The back cover is an advertisement for Bombay Sapphire. The advertisement consists of a color image of a bottle of Bombay Sapphire gin to the left of a stylized martini glass that has an olive at its top.
