From the Publisher September/October 2021

Dear Family, This year marks ONYX Magazine’s 24th anniversary. Over the years, we have brought you the most positive and vital news about the black community throughout Florida and beyond. Your support is why we can continue to be that voice, and we are grateful. We are proud to bring you the second Men of Honor. Formerly Black Men Honors, this recognition of men who make significant moves as they lead Florida forward, is one of the most anticipated social events in Florida. Nineteen of Florida’s finest are on our list this year and they represent only a small sampling of the pacesetters across the state. Men like Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings, who is on this issue’s cover. His story is one of faith and courage as he moved through the ranks to ultimately lead a community that nurtured him. Demings is joined by outstanding leaders who are being recognized for their integrity, leadership and vision and we are honored to acknowledge them. In this issue, we also take a look at prostate cancer. This terrible disease takes the lives of Black men at a disproportionate rate and we have information that could help save your life. This issue is full of information that could be vital to your family and the home. We hope you will take the time to read each article. As always, we are committed to bringing you stories that entertain, inspire and inform. Thank you for being our champion. Sincerely,
