It has been no secret that Sister 2 Sister print magazine was coming to an end. Over the last 2 years some issues would be combined or not released at all. Back in October, founder Jaime Foster Brown said that “it would be on a temporary hiatus.” The internet/economy played a big part in many black periodicals folding there print editions.
Jamie’s note to readers:
“My dear Sister 2 Sister readers, after 26 years of ‘Giving It To YOU Straight, No chaser’ we have made the tough decision to cease printing our beloved and very informative Sister 2 Sister magazine due to the harsh economy and plan to focus on our website and other digital opportunities. Sister 2 Sister is a dream that became a reality…truly my life’s work and my joy.
We love and appreciate our subscribers and longtime fans, who have faithfully had the magazine delivered to their homes or picked up a copy of Sister 2 Sister in stores and newsstands nationwide. We appreciate that our readers have trusted our mag to deliver the truth about the world of gossip, along with the best celebrity interviews, fashion, lifestyle topics, and photos that captured your mind, soul and spirit! We feel very proud that our small, but mighty staff always worked long and hard to publish a monthly magazine that folks always would say, ‘I read it cover to cover!’
For those with paid subscriptions, we ask for your understanding during this time as we work on the legal side of this complicated process, and we appreciate your patience.”
