Successful Black Parenting

MISSION

Successful Black Parenting is not about race, but about cultural differences. Faced with these questions still today, we hereby articulate our beliefs about why Successful Black Parenting is a necessary good.

Why a Black parenting magazine? As more people hear about Successful Black Parenting, the questions invariably asked are, “Aren’t all parents the same? What’s the difference?

We are familiar with the tremendous sense of validation and affirmation that is felt when positive portrayals of our communities are part of the national discourse. As professionals, we know the feeling of hope that emerges when seeing someone who looks like us in a position of strength and authority. As people in relationships, we experience the sense of connection found in friendships where there is mutual understanding and acceptance of each other’s unique qualities.

Successful Black Parenting is not about race, but about cultural differences. Faced with these questions still today, we hereby articulate our beliefs about why Successful Black Parenting is a necessary good.
