The Newhouse Magazine Department Speaker Series in the Newhouse School will bring Jet editor-in-chief Mitzi Miller to Syracuse University on Thursday, March 6. She will speak at 5:30 p.m. in the I-3 Center, 432 Newhouse 3. Follow on Twitter at #MagSpeakSU.


The New York Times calls Jet magazine a “cultural chapter” in African American life. Founded in 1951, the publication has provided perspective and stories on black politics and entertainment for over 60 years, chronicling change and even spurring it.

Miller will discuss diversity in the magazine industry, repositioning a magazine to better fit the times and staying ahead of changes in a tumultuous media landscape. A moderated conversation will be followed by a question-and-answer session.

The event, which is free and open to the public, is co-sponsored by the National Association of Black Journalists. For more information, contact Jim Shahin at
