    Peace be unto him...........In the name of God. I pray that the family is alright, and that EBONY and JET continue to prosper in spite of him.

    so true...he will be missed , he's legendary
    he also started Negro Digest and was suspended in 1951 and brought back
    1961 as Black World .....He receives a commendation from the Mayor in 1955
    he got a Presidential medal of freedom from Clinton in 1996 also in 1992 UNICEF
    and the organization of African unity gave Mr.Johnson their "AFRICA'S FUTURE AWARD

    Johnson is the only Black american still owning a highrise in Chicago based at 820 S.
    Michigan he also was the once owner of a major radio station WJPC in the 70's
    Mr.Johnson was also one who lift and help the career of another pioneer african american
    and nationally syndicated morning personality Tom Joyner he once employed like of
    Rev.Jesse Jackson as a salemen and communicator ...

    he will greatly be missed , prayers goes out to the Johnson Family and the impire
    publishing Co. of EBONY & JET his wife Eunice daughter Linda .

    He was one powerful Man against odds and struggle in the heart of Racism , depression

    he has always quoted his big success was timing , luck and hard work given the
    manning to strive and believe he was a wise business man of Chicago .
