Black History Month Magazine Covers

Black History Month Magazines: Sepia, Hep, Jive, Bronze Thrills

Sepia, Hep, Jive, and Bronze Thrills were all magazines published for the African American community by Good Publishing, based in Fort Worth, Texas. Good Publishing was owned by George Levitan, who was white. Sepia was founded in 1947 as Negro Achievements, but later changed its named and modeled itself as a black version of Life magazine. It continued publishing until 1983. There is an extensive archive of Sepia photographs that has been collected in the African American Museum in Dallas,.

In addition to Sepia, Good Publishing had a batch of sensational-style magazines, including Bronze Thirlls (“My Husband Was a Transvestite”), Jive (“Lust in My Eyes”), and Hep.

Thanks to Dull Tool Dim Bulb for many of these covers.
