Jet magazine will dedicate its April 29th issue to a special report on the 800,000 missing black children who are largely ignored and unreported by the media.

The cover says it all: “Missing & Black: Where Is The Outrage?”




The April 29, 2013 issue of JET Magazine conducts a special investigative report on the thousands of African American children who are reported missing each year, but receive no mainstream media coverage. The story questions, “Overwhelming family grief multiplied by the lack of mainstream media coverage begs the question: How do we find our missing children?”


The article also talks about one organization, the Black and Missing Foundation, Inc, which was established as a non-profit organization whose mission is to bring awareness to missing persons of color; provide vital resources and tools to missing person’s families and friends and to educate the minority community on personal safety.
