I have yet to decide for how long but I'm going to change my longtime profile picture from longtime Ebony publisher John H. Johnson to a Christmas tree image that I took on the campus of Chicago State University. I don't know how long I'm going to keep that up maybe until New Years and that'll be as if I actually put up a tree.
Anyway I had John H. Johnson up as a tribute since he passed away over the summer. Perhaps it is with his accomplishments in mind that I start this blog. He is a legend and will always be something of an influence for this blog. How can you beat a man who had used his mother's furniture as collateral to build a multi-million dollar business.
