NEW YORK — Whether she’s on the golf course or on the silver screen, Salli Richardson’s still at the top of her game. The March/April issue of The Green Magazine, the first to feature a woman as the subject of a cover story, showcases this veteran actress as she discusses the politics of Tinsel Town, motherhood, and a passion for golf that dates back nearly a decade.

But Richardson isn’t the only woman of color whose accomplishments are chronicled in this issue of The Green. Entrepreneurs such as Sarah Bates, founder and President of New Technology Steel; the radiant Michelle Williams of Destiny’s Child fame; and fitness maven Donna Richardson-Joyner also grace the pages of the March/April issue.

As if these remarkable personalities weren’t enough, readers also get the inside track on destinations such as Barcelona and San Diego, wines from the vineyards of South Africa, and superstar chef Marcus Samuelson’s latest cookbook.

As always, The Green Magazine takes you to the links, and well beyond, to offer a glimpse of good living, good times, and even better people.

The Green Magazine is privately owned and operated by Ina and Rafael Martinez, who founded the magazine because of a distinct multicultural void in the editorial content of mainstream golf publications.

The Green Magazine delivers the game’s rich history, how it is played today, and coverage of luxury destinations, fine dining, and wines & spirits.

The Green Magazine’s sumptuously illustrated large format represents the first of its kind to address a readership made up of the fast-growing demographic of affluent African Americans, Hispanics, and Asian Americans.

Members of those groups play more than 64 million rounds of golf a year. The Green Magazine is available in retailers nationwide including Barnes & Nobles, B. Dalton’s, Books-a-Million, Hastings, and select Hudson News outlets.

The Green Magazine and “The Green TV” are subsidiaries of New York City-based Vision Media and Communications, LLC, which was founded by Rafael Martinez.

Vision Media and Communications, LLC is dedicated to connecting timely developments with classic concepts by way of advanced media.
