From the Publisher July/August 2019

For more than 21 years, we have sought to educate, entertain and inspire our readers. To that end, it is an honor and a privilege to bring to you yet another exciting issue of ONYX Magazine!

In this issue we are featuring, under the new theme Business and Entrepreneurship, a look into America’s food hall explosion and how Jamal Wilson has staked his claim in the space. The first food hall developer in Tampa, Wilson shares in our cover story his interesting perspective on business and giving back. We look at how Generation Z relies on higher education to be better at their craft; and we ask the critical question: are you working ON or IN your business? The answer could the difference between success and failure for entrepreneurs. We also spotlight a FAMU student who has taken on-campus makeovers to a new business level.

As in every issue, we want to bring to your attention the brightest and best of what Florida has to offer. We encourage and welcome your comments and suggestions. We look forward to continuing to serve not only the African-American population throughout the state, but also those whose contributions and interests positively impact our communities.

As publisher, I personally thank you for continued support of ONYX Magazine and related enterprises. Enjoy as you delve into this issue!
