Established in 1997, UrbanMecca.com is a multifaceted news destination that reports on International, National (US), and local (US), news that is of special interest to African American and Urban interest audiences. Due to its varied content, the site reaches a wide range of people…across age, income, and gender all around the world.

Inspired by the achievements of what Johnson Publishing did in the magazine industry in the 20th century, UrbanMecca.com holds a special distinction as a minority owned and operated company and exists in a certain class of publishers where other sites that vie for African American traffic are only ‘products’ of large ad supported publishers.
