I haven’t hit you with any delightful, 70s-era advertisements in over a month, so let’s remedy that straight away. Here’s a fun collection of print ads from the January 16, 1973 issue of JET magazine. For those of you only vaguely paying attention, I’ll point out that that’s 40 years ago. And since JET is a weekly mag, this would be the issue in your hand four decades back.
Jet was first published in 1951 and according to their Web Site: “…is the No. 1 African-American newsweekly and has more than 7 million readers.” Soak up the flashback!
