Obama in LA, Jet Magazine goes digital, #BringBackOurGirls and more

Jet magazine enters an all-digital era

Coverage from Jet magazine's coverage of the Emmet Till murder case


This week the publishers behind Jet magazine, announced an end to the print version. \

The magazine, which first hit newsstands at the dawn of the civil rights movement, will continue only as a digital magazine app.

It was  created in 1951 by Johnson Publishing, and was a prominent newsweekly digest focused on African-Americans. It traced many prominent issues of the day, the murder of Emmet Till, the assassination of Martin Luther King and the election of President Barack Obama. 

We'll talk with NPR's Eric Deggans about the magazine's legacy and if this is the future for many other print publications.
