JET magazine moving to digital only

John H. Johnson began JET magazine in Chicago in 1951. It rose to national prominence as a key voice during the Civil Rights Movement, including the publication of graphic photos of the body of lynching/murder victim Emmett Till. Since then JET has covered everything from entertainment to fashion to politics from an African-American perspective, and highlighted positive achievements and images from the Black community. JET will continue that mission-with a 21st Century twist, when the printed magazine becomes a digital app. We talk about the history of JET and the transition. Photo: Flickr/sarahstierch
