Successful Black Parenting is an online publication about Black children and the Black family internationally. The magazine is 90 percent volunteer freelance and represents the unique characteristics of the Black family, offers information on child development, parenting and other family issues important to adults working with or raising Black children. We allow up to one backlink per article. It also provides a forum for parents to share their experiences in support of one another.
We don’t discriminate. Articles must be parent-friendly and represent the Black parent and family experience. We capitalize the word, “Black” in our style guide to differentiate between color and culture. We celebrate the Black culture which comes in all beautiful skin colors, hues, DNA, and nationalities.
Our mission is to create a supportive uplifting atmosphere that encourages success and builds positive self-esteem in children. Our audience is mostly women ages 18-to-43. Parents are busy. Include headings to separate articles, bullet points, and sidebars for fast easy reading. Hashtags and keyword suggestions are always helpful.

Photos and illustrations must show diversity at the minimum and be copyright-free. Photos must include a model release, if not Common Creative.
