Our Mission


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.

Successful Black Parenting is proud to announce that we are bringing our readers more researched-based content written by the members of the American Psychological Association’s (APA) RESilience Initiative, which provides resources to parents and caregivers for promoting the strength, health, and well-being of children and youth of color. We will also feature their members who have contributed articles to Successful Black Parenting on our BackTalk podcast. Learn more about the RESilience Initiative at www.apa.org/res.

THE AMERICAN PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION'S (APA) RESilience Initiative

Successful Black Parenting, the first national print magazine for Black parents was established in 1993 in Philadelphia by its founders, Janice Robinson-Celeste, MBA and Marta Sánchez, Ph.D.  They relaunched the publication online internationally in 2017 and are now located in Los Angeles.
