Dr. Angelou welcomes Linda Johnson Rice and Susan Taylor, two powerful women who have made their careers producing some of the most popular African-American magazines of our time.
Linda, president and CEO of Johnson Publishing Company, the company that publishes Ebony and Jet magazines, and Susan, editorial director of Essence magazine, talk about the magazines' influences and how they are educating people of all genders, ages and races.
"In a magazine, one can get—from cover to cover—15 to 20 different ideas about life and how to live it," Dr. Angelou says. Dr. Angelou talks to Linda and Susan about their personal and professional lives and the importance of magazines and strong leaders in our society.
