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.

    • Sally  On 12/03/2016 at 2:23 pm

  • francis jackson  On 10/16/2012 at 9:07 am

    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.

    The old Jet magazines that you have scanned on line are missing volumes between Nov. 1955 and October, 1957. Why were those vols. not included ?
    I was looking for a story that appeared probably some time within that period. It was written about a family in the Millington, TN area, where I grew up.
    I enjoyed reading some of the old stories. They brought back a lot of childhood memories. (A true reflection of our history as black people during that time).

    Do you have any copies of archived Ebony magazines in your stock? I am trying to locate huge article written about my recently deceased Mother back in the early 60’s, but not sure of the date, due to I was a very small child. Jet only seems to show one article in 1966. Her name was Saundra M. Lopez or incorrectly listed as Sandra M. Lopez. She was dubbed the little songbird of Chester. There are 4 people in pictures taken, my Mother, her two Aunts and myself. I cannot seem to locate it anywhere. House fire destroyed all magazines stored in attic. Please help me. I will pay anything to have them.

    I remember reading an article in Jet back in the 80’s Natalie Cole’s mother went to court to have her found incompetent. The record company tried to come up with her mother but she won the court case and Natalie was admitted to a facility for 6 months, I would love to see and read this article again. Natalie’s mother Mrs. Maria Cole saved her daughter’s life. She was brave to come up against the record companies back in the day.

    I also have a Jan. 7,1954 issue.

    Hi Cyril,

    I’m a researcher with Rutgers University, and I’m looking for an article from an old issue of Jet. The article is “Why Dixie Profs Quit in Defense of Negro: Vanderbilt Scholars ‘Outraged’ by Injustice to Minister” by Alex Poinsett, and it was published on June 6, 1960. This issue doesn’t show up anywhere online.
    Do you have any idea where I might find it?
