Message from the CEO

Dear Network, 

During these trying times, we wanted to reach out to you to bring you a bit of good news. 

Just like you, we hunkered down at home to ensure that we kept our families and our communities safe amidst the COVID-19 crisis. Then, we watched in horror as our community witnessed yet another example of police brutality. Over the past few months, we have been saddened, afraid, horrified and angry. But we’ve also been inspired by the leadership and resiliency of our community to face two crises with bravery, creativity, and passion. We know that the African American community possess the professionals, the creatives, the scholars and the visionaries needed to guide us through troubled waters.  

For the past 30 years, Who’s Who Publishing Company has highlighted successes in the African American community by publishing amazing coffee table-top books that highlight the best and the brightest of our community. Our corporate motto is, “We celebrate African American achievement.” Our organization has served as a beacon of hope and inspiration and we have worked diligently to give our audience and readers a platform to showcase pure black excellence. 

Over the past couple of years our staff has been working to evolve the brand to better serve the Who’s Who community by developing products and services to help African American professionals improve their daily lives through professional and career development. We have incorporated youth-related programming to provide a “road map” for teenagers and young professionals through youth summits, seminars, and networking events. These activities were designed because of critically important feedback from you. Our goals have been to empower you with the information and the tools you need to advance your career by becoming more knowledgeable and connected. We also firmly believe that even the hardest driving people like to have a little fun. As such, we are adding numerous ways to connect with other professionals through “lifestyle” content such as entertainment, travel, fashion, sports, and more. 

Today, we are Who’s Who In Black and we have some exciting developments to share with you. We are announcing the launch of our new initiative to build a dedicated online community of African American professionals. The goal of this new platform is to keep you connected to like-minded professionals that want more inspiring and educational content; more importantly, we will help you grow your career and live a vibrant lifestyle. Some key elements of this new platform will include:

Network Benefits (Free)

You have made it loud and clear that you value these periodicals. 

We are laser-focused on providing world-class experiences and content that will help you live your best life. So today, please be sure to stay engaged with for our latest developments. We will be in touch to share upcoming developments.
