From Generation to Generation

Written by  Administrator

As we celebrate Black History Month, our family business, Bronner Bros., celebrates 65 years of making history. Our Atlanta hair show has become the largest and most famous show in the world. Our BB brand of hair products has become one of the most loved brands with number one in its category—products like Pump It Up Spritz, Super Gro and Smooth Sheen. Our African Royale brand has produced several number one products like Hot 6 oil and Braid Spray. Our new natural brands, Tropical Roots and 4 Naturals, are now the fastest-growing natural products.

While I have been hard at work saving hair by producing products and shows, my brothers have continued the Bronner tradition of God first, family second and business third by working hard saving souls. The Bronner World Ministries include Word of Faith Worship Cathedral, Word of Faith Love Center and the Ark of Salvation in Atlanta. In 20 years of service, 50,000 Atlantans have, at one time, been members of one of these churches.

The first generation of Bronners left Kelly, Ga., a small town one hour from Atlanta, to start businesses all over the USA. There was the Bronner vacuum cleaner distributor in Washington, D.C., a night club and lounge in Philadelphia and an upholstery shop of Chicago, in addition to the many Bronners who moved to Atlanta.

Like the first generation, the second generation has started many businesses. I am proud that the magazine you are reading now comes from this heritage. I am also proud of another company I am partnered with that is continuing to make history, Rainforest Films, as we release Steve Harvey’s Think Like a Man (check it out at

Thank you for being a part of our history! Special, special thanks, and I mean special, to everyone who has purchased a product, brought a booth, advertised in the magazine, purchased a movie ticket or put money in a collection plate. We understand the trust and commitment you as a community have bestowed on us, and we are not going to let you down.
