Although there has been a severe decline in print publications on the newsstands today, Sister2Sister has maintained a strong presence in this arena as they will be celebrating their 22 years of being a part of a suffering industry. “We are more than thrilled to be celebrating our 22nd anniversary in Atlanta,” says Dr. Jamie Foster Brown, Sister 2 Sister founder. “’Sister 2 Sister’ has come a long way over the years and we look forward to bringing our readers many more years of compelling interviews. They know they can come to us for truthful reporting. People need that today more than ever. I look forward to celebrating with my readers and those who have helped sustain the magazine over the years.”

Established in 1988, Sister 2 Sister is one of the last few remaining nationally distributed black-owned magazines. The publication is dedicated to providing readers with real, forthright content—or, as its slogan simply states, “Giving it to ya straight, no chaser.” Each issue features articles catering to a variety of interests, from health, beauty and self-improvement to home design and career guidance. 

Early in her media career, Dr. Jamie Foster Brown worked at the nation’s first successfully owned and operated African American television station, Black Entertainment Television (BET). While with BET, Brown worked as an advertising secretary. The few other magazines that focused on African American recording artists, models and actors and actresses, and which also earned their way onto the national landscape include Right On! and Black Beat magazines. That was in the 1970s when Michael Jackson and his brothers, the Silvers, O’Jays, Diana Ross, Temptations and the Ohio Players were riding high on the pop and soul music charts. Dr. Foster has always been an inspiration to me as a journalist myself. I could remember many times when there was a high profile event in New York, I could look across the room and see her and a tape recorder in a celebrity’s face getting an exclusive. She has a unique way of getting her interviewee to open up to her while many of her peers have nothing but admiration for what she does”. stated Hip Hop Enquirer’s Editor-in-Chief Dennis Byron

Known for its exclusive, in-depth interviews, Sister 2 Sister has featured some of the most talked-about stories in pop culture, including an interview with Michelle Obama, a trip to Japan with Michael Jackson, a visit with Tupac in prison (accompanied by Tupac’s wife), an interview with Damon Dash after Aaliyah’s death, an exposé that revealed Grammy winners Milli Vanilli had been lip-synching, and a sit-down with Oprah that left the ‘Big O’ saying it was the best interview she’d had. The magazine is also one of a select group of publications approved to cover events at the White House.
