Imagine that- Jet Magazine (2/1988) Top 10 articles point to current events today.
Came across this February 29, 1988 Jet Magazine edition while visiting my mom last weekend.
Jet, Ebony, Life and National Geographic were a few of my favorite magazines that were always sitting on our coffee table growing up.
I started reading and became immersed in taking a walk back to the news of the day in the African America community. It was a walk of frustration, anger but also entertaining by the relevancy of current 2017 stories.
I have selected my Top 10 favorite political, sports, entertainment and civil rights article titles from February 29, 1988 to share with you:
- Rev. Jesse Jackson was running for POTUS. “Jackson Focuses on South Following Good Showings in Iowa, New Hampshire.” 😳
- “Trump Has First Bid on Tyson-Spinks (Michael) Fight.” 🤡
- Journal Recalls Black Judge (US District Judge Damon Jerome Keith) Nixes Nixon’s Wiretap Order.” 🤔
- “DC Cops swap Revolvers for Semiautomatic Pistols.” 👮🏿
- “Marine Involved in Moscow Spy Caper gets Discharge” 🕵️
