Rice also said she has no immediate plans to sell Ebony or Johnson Publishing, the company that her late father, John H. Johnson, fashioned into an iconic and influential voice in the African-American community nationwide.
“I have no plans to sell the company. None,” Rice said, adding that she cannot say what might happen in the future.
“I’m really excited about Amy [Barnett] now. That’s my main concentration now,” Rice said.
