Description

Jet’s success inspired a genre of digest-sized imitators, including Brown, Our Life and Hue, a monthly also published by Johnson. By 1982, Johnson had parlayed his original investment into a publishing empire that made him the first African American to appear on the Forbes 400 list of wealthiest Americans.
