Vibe Vixen Vibe Vixen was a spin-off of the urban stalwart Vibe magazine that was geared toward men and women who were into hip-hop music, fashion, cars and gadgets. Created in 2004 for Vibe’s female readers, Vibe Vixen focused on fashion, health and beauty, dating, entertainment, and societal issues for “urban minded females.” Wendy Williams, Tracee Ellis Ross and Estelle were some of the celebs that graced the cover of the magazine. Vibe Vixen was released quarterly until its print publications stopped and all of their efforts went online.
JET Originally billed “The Weekly Negro News,” JET magazine has been in Black homes across the country for more than 60 years. Founded by John H. Johnson of Johnson Publishing Company in 1951, the magazine first garnered attention by covering the Civil Rights movement.

The publication began to cover fashion and beauty tips, entertainment news, dating advice, political coverage, health tips and offered diet guides. Redd Foxx once called JET the ‘Negro bible” but it was recently announced that at the end of June and will continue on as a digital magazine app. Teens may have Twitter and Instagram to find out the latest on their favorite idols now but before the birth of social media, there was Right On! Started in 1971 to fill the void of a lack of publications out there for Black teens, it covered everything in pop culture geared towards its target audience. In the early years the magazine focused on super group The Jackson Five. Also helped the R&B group New Edition reach a larger audience.

But readership fell over time and the magazine rolled out its last issue in 2011. Heart & Soul While most magazines geared towards the Black community would include a section about health, Heart & Soul devoted its entire publication to the overall wellbeing of the Black woman. With articles such as “Walk a Marathon in 18 Weeks,” “The Bliss of Inner and Outer Beauty,” and “Summer Beauty Survival Kits,” Heart & Soul kept its readers educated and informed about all things health related. Like most publications struggling to stay out of the red, Heart & Soul saw its advertising dollars dry up and it soon went out of print publication.
American Legacy While other magazines were filled with entertainment and pop culture news, American Legacy magazine went after a different mindset. The only magazine at the national level with editorial content focusing exclusively on African-American history and culture, American Legacy even created its own family board game aimed at educating the Black youth on its rich history. Several years ago, American Legacy abruptly ceased printing due to a lack of advertising dollars but resumed its regular quarterly release in 2012. Emerge Emerge magazine had some powerful investors behind it. Founded in 1989 and backed by Time Inc. And BET, Emerge was targeted to Black professionals and was “designed to meet the needs of this new, affluent generation, a generation that assumes different kinds of responsibilities along with the new opportunities and freedoms it enjoys.” In 1994, the magazine went on the chopping blocks but was saved when an investor poured $2.8 million into Emerge.
However, it couldn’t be saved forever and abruptly folded in 2000.

Winjet. Xprite. Black and smoked tail lights deliver a unique look that perfectly blends in with the body of dark colored vehicles and makes it stand out from the crowd. Whatever effect you’re going for, we have the tail lights to make it happen. We offer lights in a wide choice of styles and sources of illumination, including bright and trendy Euro tail lights, long-lasting and highly efficient LED tail lights, and intense and distinctive fiber optic tail lights. So, whether you own an everyday runabout or a huge off-road rig, we have the right black and smoked tail lights to set it apart. Black tail lights have a black substrate or base on which the light bulbs are mounted, and depending on application, may have black trim.
Black tail lights come with clear lenses, allowing for a truly refined, bold appearance, elevating your four-wheeled friend above the masses. Smoked tail lights have dark tinted lenses instead of clear or red ones.
They're perfect for those looking for a stealthy look with a slight air of mystery. The smoked lights will make your bulbs seem to appear out of nowhere when you turn on the lights and make your vehicle a real attention-grabber. The 'blacked out' look is appealing and very popular, but if a color is all you're looking for, you can find plenty of kits to modify your factory lights on the market, but that's all you'll have if you get painted stock tail lights. However, our black and smoked tail lights deliver much more. Beyond the color appeal, they feature exquisite style and breathtaking look. Plus, our tail lights provide brilliant lighting that captivates the eyes of other road users and passers-by.
To offer you the finest lights, we cooperate with manufacturers that employ the best designers in the industry, who bend over backwards to create sophisticated and timeless designs. So, we are sure that in our extensive selection of one-of-a-kind lights you'll find something that suits you perfectly. With our comprehensive line of black and smoked tail lights, you not only have a wide choice of different styles, but you can also upgrade to LED or fiber optic lighting. LEDs provide extremely bright illumination of the road and have faster rise time. The faster rise time of LEDs (lighting up 0.2 seconds faster than incandescent bulbs) can increase your and your passengers' safety and prevent possible accident or damage, because the time difference gives a driver behind you almost 20 ft. Of additional stopping room at 60 mph.
Better still, LEDs are highly impervious to vibration, which makes them enduring and long-lasting. They guarantee to perform 50,000 hours or even more, so you'll probably never have to replace LEDs, saving money on replacement. Have you noticed the magnificent neon light coming from the tail lights of many late model high-end luxury vehicles?
Fiber optic tail lights are the latest in high-tech lighting, but you don't have to buy a new auto to give it an appearance makeover. Just browse our enormous inventory of black and smoked fiber optic tail lights available in a wide range of attractive patterns. Fiber optic cables can work with almost any source of illumination, but our fiber optic tail lights use LED bulbs, so that you can not only enjoy ground-breaking design and extraordinary style, but also get an advantage of LED lighting. Plus, LED bulbs and optical fiber are resistant to vibration much more than incandescent bulbs with fragile filaments.
