One of the Most notable permanent fixtures in EVERY Black Household (back
in the days), were Ebony and Jet Magazine. If you wanted to learn
about Black history, the plight of Black America, current issues facing Black
Americans, how the Political Process of America affects us, how
Politics works, who the hottest actors were, what time a particular Black
Television show aired, who got married recently, who were the most
eligible Bachelors and Bachelorettes in your town, what Cities had Black
Mayors, Police Chiefs, School Superintendents, how to Register to Vote, what cars offer
the best value for the buck, who employed Black Americans, how to apply
for College Scholarships, etc. More than likely, Ebony or Jet Magazine
could help you find answers to those questions!

We have recently been informed that the Johnson Publishing
Company Organization is currently going through a financial crisis. The
company is attempting a reorganization in order to survive. Many people
have already lost their jobs with this company that has employed thousands of
Black Americans during the course of its existence. In order to support
this effort to save OUR magazine, my friends and myself have pledged to
get a subscription to both, Ebony and Jet magazine, starting with one
We are urging every other club member who comes across this plea, to do
the same. Please post, re-post, and post again, to any Blog that you may
own, or support!

Please email this to Every person that you know, regardless of their
background. Let them know that Ebony and Jet magazines have been part of
the Black American culture for 3 quarters of a century, and that there is
a lot that they can learn about Black American culture from reading them.

We are currently discussing the idea of throwing an Ebony/Jet Party,
where people can eat, drink, and sign up for their Subscription on the
spot. Please spread this idea around to all that you know. Your
Sororities, Fraternities, Lodges, VFW Posts, Churches, Civic Groups, Block
Clubs, Caps Meetings, Book Clubs, etc.

It would be a crying shame, to lose our Historic Magazine, during the
same year of such an Historic Event as the Election of our First Black
President of the United States. Please support by AT LEAST spreading the word about this. PEACE and BLESSINGS to you and yours.
