Beyond Black &White is one of the fastest-growing relationship sites on the web!


About our audience:If you haven’t heard of Beyond Black & White yet, give it five minutes. Beyond Black & White (BB&W) is a premium-content, web-based magazine that serves the interests of the new, liberated, and socially-savvy African American woman, who is determined to find her own happiness, discover her inner and outer beauty, and live life on no one’s terms except her own. She’s college educated, upwardly mobile, and is hungry for news, tips and advice on how to maximize her position socially, physically, professionally and emotionally. What’s more, she has plenty of disposable income, and enjoys receiving insider tips on the best hair care, health, fashion and lifestyle trends. She reads BB&W at home and at work, and loves the community feeling and sisterhood of the forum, so she keeps coming back to check in several times a day.

“Hi Christelyn. I’m a sometimes lurker, rare commenter. I just wanted to say thank you for your work putting together this site. I’ve been visiting sporadically for about a year now. When I do visit though I spend hours and read like 15 post at a time. I really enjoy the discussion on the site and it’s definitely opened my eyes to many issues surrounding black women and interracial relationships as I navigate my own love life. Thank you!” iHeartLove

“Your numbers put your blog in our top 150 based on how we pull our numbers. That’s really high. The interesting thing is the number of your unique visitors comes in at a lower level, but once people visit your sight they tend to poke around a lot and that’s the number I look at.”–Shannon Chastaine, Producer, BlogHer

Thank you for liking; but dare I ask what is the answer


Thought I read somewhere that this blog is meant for women. Am I eaves dropping by checking in and posting.?

The community is mostly made of us black women. About 30 percent of BB&W are men who are currently in or seek to be in IRR with black women.  They  and any one else who visits this space respectfully are very much welcome to join in our discussions. 


Thank you I must confess that after having been in a 32 year marriage, which seemed much less, with a bright, aware, caring, passionate black woman, the angst around this issue is somewhat bewildering to me and I think it would be well worth the internal exploration to determine the motivations and doubts.

I realize how pollyanaish this must sound. And I understand the parent question, but how much of that is with in ourselves?

I also recognize how incredibly fortunate I have been all around, with family and friends. But I also attribute that to my fabulous judgment in finding the right person.

I hope this doesn't sound too pompous. I was fortunate.


Thank you; just saw your post
