Will The Drums Be Silenced?

Ebony/Jet Magazine on The Verge of Financial Collapse
Date: Thu, 12 Mar 2009 07:45:31 -0400

One of the Most notable permanent fixtures in Every Black Household
(back in the days), was the Ebony, and Jet Magazine.
If you wanted to learn about your history, the plight of Black
America, current issues facing Black Americans, how the Political
Process of America affects you, 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 a 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 year. We are urging Every other club
member who comes across this plea, to do the same. Please post,
repost, 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 magazine has been part
of the Black American culture for 3 quarters of a century, and that
there is a lot that they can learn about0D 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.
