BLAC April 2023

Dear BLAC Magazine Readers,

As we celebrate another exciting month at BLAC, I want to take a moment to reflect on our journey and share with you our ongoing commitment to empowering and uplifting Black voices. Since our humble beginnings in 1999 as African American Parent, we have evolved into a platform that proudly represents Black Life, Arts & Culture.

With the transition of ownership in April 2020, we’ve focused on expanding our reach and embracing the digital landscape, while still cherishing the tangible experience of print.

After 20 years, the launch of BLAC Memphis is a testament to our commitment to taking a national approach to the local Black community.

As we enter into this new chapter of growth, we continue to be guided by our mission: To empower and uplift Black voices by amplifying the stories that matter most.


Together, let’s keep making the world a more vibrant and just place. Enjoy this incredible issue.

In closing, I leave you with an inspirational quote by the phenomenal Maya Angelou: “You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

Warm regards,

Billy Strawter, Jr.
Publisher, BLAC Magazine
