When ‘Jet’ Mattered

Black doctors, judges, truckers and laborers were pressed together while they waited to be shorn. They talked sports or politics and thumbed through magazines and newspapers. There were the standard white publications — The Philadelphia Inquirer, LookLife,Field & Stream. But there were also magazines that most white people never saw and that offered views of black achievement and middle class normalcy that were largely excluded from the white press.

Among these were Tan, Sepia, Ebony and the “Negro’s bible” of the era, Jet, whose publisher announced on Wednesday that it would cease print publication and move to the Web. Jet was profoundly important at a time when the white press denied the existence of the black elites and generally found black people of interest only if they committed crimes.    [Read more]

    I remember reading in Jet sometime back in the 80’s ( I think) there was a White student from a University in Connecticut that wanted to know if the complaints made by Black America was justified. He had the pigment of his skin changed & stated South he lasted 2 weeks when he got to Georgia. He could take no longer…. I would like to have this article.

    You can donate your jet magazines to the
    Carter G Woodson library or donate them to the museum of African American History, whose late founder was Dr. Margaret Burroughs. Both places are located in Chicago as well as Ebony/jet magazine. For your information Ebony building has been sold; can’t say if ebony magazines is still printing. It was a sad day to see that building go, and by the way, the building was purchased ‘cash’ prompto…someone had the money…Its founder was John H. Johnson, who started the magazine with 500 dollars. He has passed on. A bit of history from what I was told, because he was a blackman he could not purchased the bulding; however, a white friend of his purchased the building and later handed it over to him. Don’t like to think of those days, what black people had to do to survive, ebony magazine being one of them among many human interest stories.
