"Outlet celebrating other people. I'm sort of tying this back into ebony in a way because. Like I said I grew up on that magazine grew up on jet magazine I? Think a lot of black Americans grew up with that magazine in their orbit and while I remember reading it as a kid I certainly don't remember like synthesizing I think most of the information that was in it like it's a lot of stuff that I don't. Really get now until I'm an adult that I can look back on it and think, wow, ebony was was it like yes ebony was a magazine from Johnson Publishing Company, but Johnson Publishing Company also put out books that they sold in their magazine Johnson publishing also owns a beauty company that put out hair care for men hair care for women that. Advertise in the magazine. So like not only are they selling you this representation of blackness but now you can also go and buy it like you can be a part of it by you know buying a do care kit or or a relax from ravine or something like that, and there was so interesting how ebony just kind of had their hand in. Every pot about driving forward the sort of positive aspirational model of blackness. You know really during a time when I think of course, we're still fighting for civil rights and just fighting for equal representation. They really were at the forefront of that sometime in in high school I, remember doing a book report on John Johnson's biography succeeding against the odds. I think being able to see how much one person was able to really dry forward this conversation about representation and about even just like the stories of what other black people are doing out there in a way has found its into my work through the black weblog awards is certainly the revision path. So there ten years, ten year interval between those two things two, thousand and three. You start the black weblog awards, ten years. Later you start revision path, which is a story in itself. Important work he's done for I think four hundred episodes. Could you frame it for our listeners who don't know what revision path is? Sure. So revision path is a weekly showcase of the world's best. Black Graphic designers, web designers, and web developers. Really. It's really kind of say digital creatives in general because we certainly had more people that are kind of outside of those three particular roles. and. We just do end up conversations about the work that they're doing. We talk about their story how they got to where they are now. And depending on whom the guest is, there may be other things that we try to dive into. For example we had. An expert from expert that's living in Amsterdam. This was I don't know maybe around two, thousand sixteen or so right as trump got elected and we had like this great conversation around. What's it like being a black ex pats over there and do you. Have a feeling of wanting to come back to the states and like just how are you feeling in general? Even. During pandemic, we've been every person that I've interviewed I sort of touched on in some kind of way like. I just a gut check. Mike how are you feeling like where you at? So it's really more about putting forth these people's individual stories. I really try to take myself out of it as much as possible even though I'm the host i. kind of just feel like I'm more of the. Conduit for like uplift what other people are doing because I feel like you know in design media that's important. I think if you go into most bookstores and are probably looking for design books, design magazines, you just don't see a lot of people of color and you definitely don't see a lot of black people and granted. PODCAST is not a book podcast is not a magazine, but this is certainly where people's attention is that right now in terms of media and so revision path is able to be this kind of weekly. Digest of you kind of getting a sense of who this person is why are they important and how you can really follow them and learn more about them I think it can be very easy to kind of fall into the pattern of saying what you do for your job is just to work. which it is, but also based on what it is that you do where you are in your career who you are as a person and the the trials and tribulations that you've had to go through to get where you are like that's a story. That's a story that you know wants to hear that someone out there can empathize with now it sure is and I I was telling Jessica before. We got on with you that I had spent some time pouring over the archives and then I found myself drawn by memory to your work around black. Panther. And it was so much fun to be a and to listen to you be a fan behind the scenes and you teach us about these creative people who made this world for us and I was wondering if you could help put into perspective. Why Mc Bozeman, and his amazing colleagues in the entire ecosystem mattered so much and what they've done for representation in the creative and design fields. That's a heavy question. I really think you know with with Chadwick you know rest in peace to him and of course, condolences to his friends and family and people that he's worked with. His representation of Black Panther I think was just something bigger than a role in a movie if anyone can think back to that time. I say from twenty, seventeen, two, thousand, eighteen when the movie was announced and. The fervor around that movie and that role. I've never seen anything like that. It was so much more than just oh, he's just as actor in a marvel movie I mean he's playing this iconic superhero. The black. Panther of course has that association with the actual Black Panther Party, the political movement here in the United States and then for Chabba too I think come from an HVAC. You have also played all of these other real life black. Heroes Thurgood. Marshall, Jackie. Robinson. James Brown. It's something that I think in hindsight we're finally seeing just how much he was able to shoulder through representation and be able to kind of take on all those larger than life roles. It's I don't know. It's so hard to kind of wrap my head around just how. Huge that is he. He. Brought Marvel. I mean, well, one to the company he brought marvel just so much. Energy and diversity an interest from people but he really really really united people through that role and was still like moving forward to do more things. I know he has a project coming out soon I think it's Ma Rainey's black bottom, which is one of the players from August Wilson Century Cycle. At. That's that's a whole other kind of representation of blackness I granted. It's fictional, but it's still something that is steeped in this. American black ethos.

"Legacy series this morning talking about the legacy of black business ownership here in Chicago joined on the line by Clarence Walden. Who is a former editor with Jim magazine as well as more Gina Christian who is a form editor with ebony magazine. The book empire the house that job Johnson built. And it's funny because as I was doing research for this. I went and picked up the fortieth anniversary of black enterprises industrial B industrial one hundred and init- Clarence John H Johnson by two thousand twelve. Johnny johnson. Johnson publishing company had fallen to number thirty and Baldwin Richards foods was number twenty three and gone from the list with some of the prominent names like soft Shane and others. We had one particular oughta actually to black owned auto dealerships one was Sutton auto team in in and the other was occurred. Ac- auto group the advertising agency number four in the country. At that time was Burrell communications and number eight was coming ground. Good to see both of them are still there. Then we had before seaway Bank, a number thirteen Illinois federal savings Bank and number fifteen Highland community Bank. And of course with set managers. We had areo capital investments, which is still going strong as well as Luke. Capital markets, and it's just something there. Because when you look at the BT lists thirty to forty years before twenty twelve it was populated by just the a greater number of black owned businesses Clarence. Yeah. Yes. Indeed. Yes. Indeed. I remember that that issue came as a great surprise that. We would not number one. Really really hit me. Like, wow, what happened? But I do know that I just feel I then than whenever that was still we pull out of it. Whatever that was we would have pulled out of it in that that we did. I don't remember. That. Yes, maybe get answer that question. But it was a big shot. Then. Hey, mark. No, I was just going to say more Gena in terms of there is this brand new documentary that encourage everybody to see on t t w it's called boss. The black experience and business and premiered this past week on W, and the producer there who has done an exceptional job actually came out. And and brought to light some information here that I didn't know, and that was you probably knew this Gina that John H Johnson actually produced a film called the secret selling of the negro market. Yes. Yes. That that was something that was done because not only a pioneer and trailblazer in publishing, but also in business, he was credited with creating the black consumer because their time where in addition to people only believing that African Americans work contributors. The country. But also that there was this belief that we were not consumer and that we didn't purchase and on Wall Street. So he create a documentary because he wanted to show people, and it was also a pamphlet as well that hey, black people by and guess what our money is green too. And that is why he hit that documentary. Always a businessman about him was that he was a better business. Because that is how he was able to make it work. He aligned himself with a bit hide of the industry publishing everywhere. And that's how he was able to continue his impair into building. Because he was a businessman at heart. You go in. I also wanna give who does to Stanley no sin junior who is the producer and documentary filmmaker of the boss, and so once again, go to t t w and see if you can get it online to the phone lines right now going to begin with Mark calling from the west side around. Chicago speaks Chicago a question this morning. Yeah. I mean, Chris was this was news for me too. As a young boy in Jamaica reading ebony I you know, so it's it's reach was global. I mean to say that it didn't just inspire African Americans that did had a global global reach. You know with that said, I think that this is a warning and a cautionary tale stall of that. Hey, the world is changing technology is changing across the landscape, and we have to adjust. I mean, I read that. Yet. We're very slow to get in on the whole internet and moved to digitizing and moving to the internet as a means of communications. So I think that that might have had a huge impact on all of us. You know, our churches our businesses our careers. We have to look at. Hey, what's going on around us? And you know, what I'm doing making sense of what's going on around me. Yeah. And I think that's a question that is a cautionary tale for every single one of us. Indeed. In also invest in ourselves, you know, and and in spend where we live so vitally important. Hey, mark. I appreciate your call this morning. Thank you deed moving on right now to Frank calling from the west side. Also, you're running. Doing good good. Thank you. I'm okay. Happy Easter to you. Of of. Before the Mayflower. Yeah. Upgraded foes black thing that Denison Johnson. I think it was kind of a victim is also own demands not the factor tackle. On whole class. Advertising and promotion and the reach out to I league. Support this coming this. Same Johnson Johnson Becca, plenty of Johnson Johnson. No, no, no, no. That I wish the John sounds was big as John Doug about Johnson and Johnson. That's a privately held Goodman. That is worth billions of dollars. No, no. A lot of people may be today. This is not saying what's causing a back away from. I'm gonna tell you one thing, I think, and I want, you know, more Geena Gina to chime in here. I think that a lot and Clarence you too. I think a lot of people associated Johnson. Did not see Johnson products that that had like soft Shane and things. John Johnson products and afro sheen. You had Johnson products that also was headquartered right here in Chicago. And I think that many people mistake. Johnson product, John publishing company. Time in there. Evect away from it. Two people over the years. So backed away from it. No, I wouldn't go. Let's not be extreme, you know, in terms of how common terms of saying that it's killing. Yeah. Turned on your radio for me there to hang on Lima, Gina, you know, did you find that to be the case during your research there that a lot of people kinda confused Johnson clocks with Johnson publishing? People did confused Iraq and products. Because at one point as I'm Johnny Johnson had an empire that it's reach what within more just publishing, but also in hair care products. He had a line called Rabian access for women trendy had Duke for me. I remember. Use the Duke product into this. I think when I was in one f for Duquet, you know, they're older normally. He utilized his employees as well. He he also I might add he he high and people who work very attractive. So you had a. You have a voice for radio. Offer that reason Denard well right now, okay.
