The cover of the 60th-anniversary issue, which comes out on Thursday, features President Barack Obama. He is one of 10 African Americans celebrated in the article “Living the Dream,” according to Tia Brown, the magazine’s senior editor. Others in the article include Oprah Winfrey, the Rev. T.D. Jakes, Beyoncé and Queen Latifah. “These are people who have been able to achieve the ultimate level of success,” says Brown.

This issue includes a retrospective of the “Jet Beauty of the Week,” which delivered a full-page photograph of a girl-next-door type in every issue.
