About Jet

Jet's content is organized into the following sections: "Scoop," "News," "Week's Best Photo," "Life," "Entertainment," "Love," "Beauty," "Look," "Game," and "Playlist." Much of the magazine's information is presented in shorter articles, lists, or briefs, which is fitting with why the name "Jet" was chosen. Founder John H. Johnson described his choice in the first issue, writing, "In the world today everything is moving along at a faster clip. There is more news and far less time to read it."

Despite its heavy lifestyle focus, Jet doesn't shy away from covering hard news and issues that matter to the black community. Jet's covers feature accomplished African-American leaders and recognizable celebrities, often who correspond with that issue's main story. Perhaps the magazine's longest-running section is its "Beauty of the Week," a sexy reader-submitted photograph of an African-American woman in a swimsuit with a short biography. The intent of the feature is to promote the idea that black women are beautiful.

Throughout the year, Jet may publish special issues devoted to the magazine's most popular topics, such as fitness, money, faith, beauty, and careers. Its notable annual issues include its "Black History Month Issue," "Jetsetters 40 Under 40 Issue," and "Best of the Year Issue."

African-Americans seeking an authoritative source on headlines and lifestyle topics of interest to the black community would enjoy a subscription to Jet magazine!

Still a litte Old School...

By Independent Woman

from Maryland

So look, it's the same ole magazine since I was in my 20s and I'm now in my 40s. 1. The magazine is too small. 2. The Jet beauty, come on...and let me say I am a very attractive woman and I appreciate another beautiful woman, but why does she have to be in a bathing suit? That's lame and displays sexism. Why can't she be in cute outfit, rocking heels and handbags. Aren't most of Jet magazine's readers FEMALE, come on. And where are the male profiles? 3. Magazine is just outdated...

Good Story Reading

By Happy

from California

I have been subscribing to JET Magazine for about 10 years. The articles are very interesting and I enjoy the magazine because the articles are not very long and are easy to read when I don't have much time.

The Church Program of Black America

By Harlemknight

from Harlem

Jet magazine publishes news that you cannot get anywhere else. By publishing press releases of major black organizations and publicists, Jet brings the black community a national news pamphlet with fun.
