Cover Black Hollywood for Sister 2 Sister

Initially launched as a newsletter for women in entertainment by industry veteran Jamie Foster BrownSister 2 Sister has been breaking stories in black Hollywood since 1988. And, unlike the gossip and innuendo rampant in the blogosphere, S2S routinely gets its information from the stars themselves.

“Our stories, they’re longer than what you’ll find in other publications, but they’re really more like conversations than interviews,” explained senior editor Ericka Boston. “Our mission is to try to teach. So, we’ll talk to the entertainers about the lessons that they’ve learned from whatever experiences they’ve gone through, and it’s more so about achieving an understanding, as opposed to just fishing for a headline.”

The pub also covers food and fitness trends and has an abundance of opportunities for freelancers. Have a great story in mind? For pitching etiquette and editors’ info, read How To Pitch: Sister 2 Sister.
