Our January magazine of the month, JET, was founded in 1951 by John H. Johnson of Chicago, Illinois. We selected Jet in honor of this weekly magazine's 60+ years of publication, and Martin Luther King Jr. Day on January 16th.
Mr. Johnson was also the founder of Ebony, which features coverage of African-American celebrities and politicians. Jet includes news features, along with features on celebrities and dating, diet, fashion, and other advice. One popular Jet feature, started in 1952, is the "Beauty of the Week."
