Dotdash Meredith's Parents brand last week announced the launch of Kindred, a digital destination created for the parents and caregivers raising the next generation of Black children. The new site offers a safe place for sharing wisdom and solutions-based news, and honoring the parenting cultures and familial traditions of previous generations.
Kindred by Parents aims to both center and celebrate the voices and experiences of Black families from a multitude of communities, Parents said in a press release. It reports news and covers topics through an intersectional lens, providing ideas and practical advice from experts, and offering lifestyle features that honor Black cultures and traditions, while carving paths for new ones.
More than 175 articles and features are available now, and new content is created daily. Posts include:
"Culturally, we parent differently, and we do family differently,” Kindred Editorial Director Kelly Glass said. “There's so much nuance in the Black family experience that parenting publications don't capture. Kindred is filling that gap. We're also inviting the entire village of people into the fold because we know firsthand how important the aunties, the grandparents, and those key figures in Black families are to the lives of Black children. All of us who take seriously the responsibility to raise Black children with a radical sense of freedom and joy are going to find community here in the news, stories, and experiences we share on Kindred."
Kindred by Parents has four original video series created by Senior Video Producer Kareema B. Partin. Episodes now available on parents.com, YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook include:
