Jennifer Jackson was just 18 years old when she walked into the Chicago headquarters of Playboy. It was 1964 and Jackson, who is African American, was in college. She was looking for secretarial work, but the folks at Playboy had something else in mind. “I applied and right away they put me in a bunny costume,” she recalls. “I hadn’t dreamed about being a bunny.”

She was the youngest hire at the Playboy Club in Chicago, and it was the first time she’d ever worn three-inch heels. She got more fan mail than any other bunny — along with some hate mail, too. Almost immediately, a Playboy photographer began pestering her to bare it all for the pages of Hugh Hefner’s increasingly popular magazine, which in addition to racy pictures boasted celebrity interviews and elegant prose by some of the nation’s top writers.
