Three 70s Winston ads targeting the Black community
The idea of Blacks smoking Winstons in the modern era would be weird to see. I believe the 70s was one decade when mo Blacks smoked non-menthols than the Salems/Kools/Newports and other menthols. I wouldnt say the majority of Black smokers preferred non-menthols in the 70s. But there was likely a higher rate of Black smokers with non-menthols back then (compared to the very low rate of Black smokers with non-menthols in the modern era).
One of these Winston ads actually features the old Menthol Winstons. I believe Menthol Winstons were discontinued before the 80s started. Since I never saw a pack of em before as a boy.
