About IMPACT Magazine

Seeing the need in her community for positive imagery, Tunisha C. Brown, began the journey of bringing forth IMPACT Magazine. IMPACT Magazine is a lifestyle print and digital publication. IMPACT’s mission is to empower, encourage, and to educate readers through the power of images and words. Since its inception in 2007, IMPACT has been recognized for its intellectual, innovative, and revolutionary coverage of the community.
As the Editor, Tunisha believes magazines should get to the heart of a story; to understand and to communicate the root cause of a thing. To be the curator of each issue as if it’s a cultural time capsule is the desire of IMPACT Magazines focus. Brown has created a team of a great designer and writers who are hungry for their words to make a change in the communities it serves.
IMPACT has had the honor of speaking on issues with some of today’s influential thinkers and doers. Grammy nominated artists R&B Diva Angie Stone/Musiq Soulchild (The Husel)/Chrisette Michelle, NAACP Image Award Winner and actor Malik Yoba, and media mogul Karen Civil have all graced the cover of IMPACT Magazine.
2014 brought about a change for the number one urban inspirational publication. Well known for its events, IMPACT Magazine evoked on a journey for the reader to have a live experience with the cover features; wherein ‘IMPACT Magazine Presents: Cocktails & Conversations’ came to life!

Cocktails & Conversations launched in Atlanta, GA with Grammy Nominated R&B Diva, Angie Stone with approximately 200 guests in attendance. From the initial event, Cocktails & Conversations has expanded to include over 100 partners, including sponsors, bloggers, small businesses, and other industry professionals.

2015, IMPACT Magazine partnered with BE100 Radio where Cocktails & Conversations had a featured segment on the station. BE100 Radio is owned by music mogul and Love & Hip Hop ATL star, Debra Antney. The internet radio station is number one for indie artists and heard in over 36 countries.

2017, Tunisha decided to celebrate women who are making an IMPACT in their respective communities during IMPACT’s 10-year anniversary dinner where Karen Civil was the guest of honor. From the initial dinner, the Women of IMPACT mantra has become a movement hosting events in various states for women to attend the dinner not only to be honored, but to be in a space where talks to support each other will be initiated.

Tunisha’s passion is to awaken those to an understanding of the power they have within. To use their strengths to take charge of their lives and the communities that surrounds them. She brings her gift of inspiration to every reader, sharing her remedy for embracing the best application, both personally and professionally. Through this action, it will aide in finding the fulfillment and success in life to be an effective IMPACT to someone else.
