African American photo collection being auctioned by Johnson Publishing in Chicago

CHICAGO (Fox 32 News) – It’s being called perhaps the most significant collection of African American photos in history, and soon, we’ll know who owns it.

Millions of pictures from the archives of Chicago’s Jet and Ebony magazines went on the auction block Wednesday and the winning bid will be announced in the next few hours.

Inside a nondescript warehouse on Chicago’s West Side, archivist Vickie Wilson led FOX 32 into a storeroom containing a treasure trove of African American history.

“We’re looking at the archive images from Johnson Publishing down through the years,” said Wilson. “Over 70 years of history.”

Nearly four million photographs from the magazines packed neatly into folders inside thousands of cardboard storage boxes.

“This is a picture of Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King,” said Wilson.

There are African American athletes, Billy Williams, Reggie Jackson and Ray Robinson. Musicians like James Brown, Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk, Ray Charles and Quincy Jones. Even poet Maya Angelou as a young dancer.

“This is African American history,” said Dr. Margena A. Christian, author. “We have more than seven decades worth of our images, our stories.”

Dr. Christian is a former Johnson Publishing employee who recently wrote a book about the company, which declared bankruptcy earlier this year. It’s now auctioning its photo archive to repay its debts.

Dr. Christian says it’s important the collection remain in the public eye.

“It’s the hope and desire that whoever owns this does the right thing,” said Dr. Christain. “And is able to see the beauty and importance of why these images should be seen. Why these stories should continue to be told.”

At one point, the collection was valued at $60 million. But its significance is priceless.

“You see things you’ve never seen before,” said Wilson.

Dennis Rodman is a possible accomplice in theft at yoga studio.

He’s more of an accomplice.

Dennis Rodman is being accused of theft, along with three other men, after some very luxurious yoga clothes went missing..yea, yoga clothes. Sounds unbelievable but the whole thing was caught on tape. Video from VIBES Hot Yoga studio in Newport Beach show Rodman acting as a distraction to the employees while a female in his entourage stuffed items in her purse. At one point, he even shielded her from view while she put more items in her purse.

A male in the group broke a $2,500 art piece after stating they intended to buy it. The entire group eventually left with the broken art piece and refused to pay for it. At 57-years-old, Dennis Rodman doesn’t need another stint in jail (as he is currently on probation). No word on what charges he and the group will face as of now. But…

R. Kelly case may be affected by Michael Avenatti’s indictment

R. Kelly’s lawyer believes Michael Avenatti’sarrest on federal extortion charges could torpedo the singer’s sex abuse case, according to a report Tuesday.

Steve Greenberg is calling into question the “chain of custody” of the alleged sex tape believed to be the smoking gun in the case against Kelly, TMZ reported.

He said there’s a possibility that the tape — which allegedly shows the R&B star engaged in a sex act with a minor — could’ve been altered before it landed in prosecutors’ hands.

Avenatti, who represents several of Kelly’s alleged victims and their family members, got the damning evidence from a person who’s extorted Kelly before, sources told the gossip site.


The man recently confessed to Chicago prosecutors that the “I Believe I Can Fly” singer’s team forked over about $1 million to prevent the tape from going public in the past — raising the question of how the recording wound up in Avenatti’s possession.

Avenatti said he turned over two sex tapes to prosecutors but Greenberg told TMZ he’s only aware of one.

Kelly is facing 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse of four victims, including three minors.

Avenatti, meanwhile, was arrested Monday on charges that he tried to extort more than $20 million from Nike by threatening “to release damaging information” about the sneaker giant, according to court papers.

Surviving R. Kelly: Ex wife Drea Kelly tells her story to ABC Nightline

Surviving R. Kelly is Lifetime’s new documentary series that, over a course of three nights, will tell the harrowing stories of sexual abuse allegedly perpetrated by famous R&B singer, R. Kelly. One of the most riveting accounts in the series comes from Andrea Kelly, a woman who first shared her story of alleged abuse by Kelly last summer. But exactly who is Andrea Kelly, and how is her story relevant to the series?

According to PeopleAndrea Kelly was married to R. Kelly from 1996 to 2009, and she is the mother to his three children. She met Kelly in 1994 when she auditioned as a backup dancer for his shows. Eventually, Andrea went on to marry Kelly and became a creative director and choreographer for many of his world tours and performances. According to her own website, Andrea is a trained dancer from Chicago who now advocates on behalf of women who have suffered from domestic violence.

After 15 years of marriage, Andrea finalized her divorce from Kelly in 2009, but it wasn’t until last summer that she publicly detailed abuses she allegedly faced at the hands of her ex-husband. In an interview with TV One’s Sister Circle daytime talk show in June of 2018, Andrea broke her silence and described the incidentsthat led her to leave the marriage. “We got divorced because I was no longer going to sit and be violated,” Andrea said in the interview. “What he did to me was criminal.”

R. Kelly did not immediately respond to Romper’s request for comment

In October of 2018, Andrea made an appearance on The View in which she revealed what prompted her to finally speak out about her relationship with Kelly. She said that she heard the story of another Kelly accuser on a TV show and found the women’s story to be exactly the same as her own.

“It was just something about that that pierced my spirit, and I was like if no one else is going to speak up for her, if no one else is going to believe her, at least she knows that I do,” Andrea told The View panel. “It’s about saving lives. You cannot not speak when someone’s life and what they’ve been through is parallel to yours — It’s different when you hear words that ring true to your spirit because you’ve survived it and been through it.”

Andrea’s accounts will be featured in Lifetime’s new documentary, alongside the testimony of other Kelly accusers and people from his inner circle. In a clip for the series, Andrea gives insight into what went through her mind when she suffered the alleged abuse by Kelly. “You don’t even believe in your own sense of judgement after a while, and you’re trying to figure out ‘How do I get him back to the good space?’ ” she says in the clip. “I’ll just take responsibility for it, I’ll just say it’s my fault. I’ll say yes to whatever it is, I’ll apologize, because if I could just get him back to the good guy, the one that I fell in love with, then I’m in a good space.”
