Ebony Publisher Tells
Advertising Club Why
Of Negro Publications
By Staff Writer
The March meeting of the Minneapolis Advertising Club
heard John H. Johnson of Chicago, publisher of EBONY, JET
and TAN magabines tell “How To Sell the Negro Market” at
the Hotel Nicollet Wednesday March 18, at a noon luncheon.
Johnson was introduced to the club by Cecil Newman,
of the Spokesman and Recorder newspapers. Newman said
Johnson had done the most out- ;
standing publishing job in the
U. S. in the past decade.
The EBONY publisher told the
advertising men that Negro media
existed because the general pub
lications—magazines and news
papers did not give the U. S.
Negro-One-Tenth a proper propor
tion of its editorial and news
coverage. This was the reason for
the founding of the Negro Press
in 1827 the speaker said, and
today it is the reason for its
existence and growth.
Alert advertisers of goods, Mr.
Johnson said services and products
will spend 12 million dollars for
advertising in 1953 to reach the
Negro market through the Negro
magazine and newspaper because
this media reaches the Negro con
sumer Intimately and In a manner
that creates loyalty for the ad
vertised product in the Negro.
Johnson told the advertising
man that while Negroes had pret
ty girls, weddings. attended
church, achieved many outstand
ing things, the daily press and the
monthly magazines generally dis
regarded the normal every-day
life the the Negro family.
“Negro parents, like to see their
daughters weddings in the papers
but they find them only in the
Negro papers and therefore their
loyalty and interest in that press
transcends that Interest in any
other media."
• Mr. Johnson said that he ap
preciated the United States more
after a trip to Europe. He said
that the lowliest Negro born in
America has an opportunity to
rise to heights in wealth and ac
complishment He said that in
Europe the race problem la non
existent but that the economic
problem which dooms the average
man born poor to remain poor an
his life is the problem which
