To support A Johnson Publishing Story, an immersive installation created in response to the legacy of Johnson Publishing Company, publisher of Jet and Ebony magazines. Organizers will convey the influence and aesthetic of JPC in its prime, demonstrating the role played by Johnson and JPC in defining a black aesthetic and disseminating popularized images of blackness and black culture to national and international audiences.  This exhibition will be exhibited at the Stony Island Arts Bank and will be accompanied by a short documentary.
