Happy Birthday to American Businessman and Publisher John Harold Johnson (1918-2005)

John H. Johnson was the founder of Johnson Publishing Company and created and published, “Negro Digest” “JET” and “EBONY” magazines. He was also the owner of “Fashion Fair” the worlds number one makeup and skin care line for Women of Color.

Mr. Johnson is very special to The Black Masculist because he was one of the three men that inspired co founder, writer and publisher of The Black Masculist, La’Var J. Battles to become a publisher of Black News.

In honor of the legend, all week The Black Masculist will be posting quotes of inspiration from Mr. Johnson.
