Advertise With BLAC® Chicago


BLAC is an African-American Black Owned publication launched in 1999 under its original name “African American Parent Magazine” before expanding into branded products, production, talent representation, digital marketing, among other things since 2009 when it became known simply as “BLAC” (an acronym for Black Life Arts & Culture) to better reflect the mission of the brand.

BLAC covers the people and places of importance to our community. We strive to be inclusive across the entire African Diaspora; providing readership ranging from late 20s to upper 50’s with engaging content.

We are excited about the future of BLAC and remain committed to bringing the stories of life, arts, and culture to the black community. BLAC is inclusive of all of our voices, striving to have engaging, informative, sometimes difficult and sometimes transformative conversations that are the catalyst for change. Like family, we may not always be on the same page, but we are willing to come to the table for a healthy dialogue. My hope is that you are willing to do the same.

So, let’s start talking.
