Young Black Starz has worked directly with many parents over the years to support their child(ren)’s careers. Here’s what some of them had to say about their personal experiences with us:
“Young Black Starz is a wonderful resource for our young actresses! It gives recognition to kids who are doing a fantastic job who might otherwise be overlooked by mainstream media. Keep up the wonderful work!”
S. Nash, mother of Kortney Nash
“I have been a fan of the YBS website for many years. I became a fan because I admired how much they supported child actors and always portrayed them in a positive light. YBS is one of a kind because Toria is not only the website’s host, she is the children’s number one fan. I was hesitant to have my girls added to the roster of so many amazing and talented kids, but Toria assured me that they would have her support and she would always seek my permission before adding anything to the site regarding the girls: she has stood by her word.
Young Black Starz, you are doing a fantastic job! Keep up the good work!”
“Our experience with YBS has been phenomenal! The founder and chief editor contacted us back in 2005 and was committed, at that time, to bring greater exposure to Rhyon who had just landed a series regular job on “Lincoln Heights,” an ABC Family TV Series. She has been a wonderful source gathering old clips, writing editorial pieces, and being an awesome support! YBS is a GREAT place for child actors to get exposure and an excellent place for fans to learn more about the Young Black Starz they love to watch! An AMAZING interactive website was [also] developed [for Rhyon by the founder] and the fans absolutely LOVED it! Toria and YBS are just incredible!”
“I love YoungBlackStarz.org! They keep readers and fans connected with young stars via very upbeat, positive articles, posts and interviews. I enjoy catching up on my favorites on the website. In addition, it’s always fun and interesting to learn about new and rising YoungBlackStarz.
My sons, Dante & Dusan Brown have been featured on YoungBlackStarz.org since September 2009. Every time a YBS reader mentions how they heard about them as budding entertainers, it gives them a boost of excitement knowing that their fan base is growing organically and that they’re potentially being an inspiration to other tweens and teens that aspire to pursue their passion of entertainment.
In our current world, where often times children of color have limited images and knowledge of young black talents due to the lack of media coverage, YoungBlackStarz.org is a breath of fresh air!
I applaud YoungBlackStarz.org for their efforts and look forward to watching them to continue to grow, as well as our young stars growing gracefully from talented tweens to talented teens to young adults and beyond!”
