Publisher Rich Black Wins National Award

Rich Black, ONYX Magazine’s publisher and CEO, received the Emmett Till Award during the Leadership Awards Dinner at the Conferences of National Black Churches (CNBC) in Orlando Wednesday, December 14. The award is inspired by Till’s mother, Mamie Till, who continued to tell her son’s story to keep his memory alive. Black was tapped for the honor because of ONYX Magazine’s focus on the community members and issues impacting them.

“ONYX Magazine tells the stories we need to hear, and the stories that you tell, we will live and remember forever,” said presenter and local organizing committee member Minister Jonathan McKnight of Sanctuary of Praise in Orlando.
