The award-winning publication, Successful Black Parenting™ is not about skin color, but is about cultural differences. We recognize the importance of Black children internationally seeing themselves on the covers and in the pages of magazines to empower them toward a successful future.

Our Mission

Successful Black Parenting, the first national magazine for Black parents, was established in 1993 as a print publication by founders Janice Robinson-Celeste, MBA and Marta Sánchez, Ph.D. and they brought it back in 2017 online.
