0 African American Magazine Before Ebony or Jet

John H. Johnson did a lot to move African American magazines forward in the 1940's with The Negro Digest, Ebony, and Jet. Johnson wasn't the first person to publish a magazine that spoke to the interests of black people. In July 1938 The Mirror of Liberty, the first edition of a quarterly periodical was published by David Ruggles.
