Legacy Magazine Miami and South Florida Magazine’s issues are distributed in the Miami Herald and Sun-Sentinel. The new issues will arrive on newsstands on Sunday, December 18, 2022.

Hollywood, Fla. (December 16, 2022) – Black women are among the nation’s highest performers in virtually every category. The latest issues of Legacy Magazine promoting the region’s Black women achievers confirm that South Florida elevates the expectations in corporate and community settings.  M•I•A MEDIA GROUP LLC, publisher of Legacy Miami and Legacy South Florida, the premier publications for South Florida’s Black influencers and affluencers, will release the highly coveted editions on Sunday, December 18, in the Miami Herald and the Sun Sentinel.

“In this issue, we round out the year with the Most Influential and Prominent Black Women in Business and Industry. There is always discussion about how much work is left to be done in the Black community,” said Russell Motley, Legacy’s Associate Publisher and Editor-in-Chief. 

“However, Legacy’s honorees remind us just how far we’ve come.”

Along with the honoree highlights, readers can enjoy profiles on highly accomplished executives like Stephanie Collier Jones, president of the Technology Business Unit at Convey Health Solutions; Roshell Rinkins, vice president of Grants Administration and Chief DEI Officer at the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation; Charisma Montfort, interim chief procurement officer at Miami-Dade County Public Schools; Michele Collie, senior vice president and director of CRA at City National Bank of Florida, and Camille Clark, senior vice president of Marketing & Communications at Visit Lauderdale, along with a host of impressive and emerging professionals and community servants. 

The magazines also showcase compelling content that will leave readers politically informed, economically empowered, and intellectually intrigued. Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava’s column touts how small businesses are winning with county reforms. Miami-Dade County School Board Member Dr. Steve Gallon, III, showcases how residents are supporting the power of public education. Miami-Dade Chamber of Commerce CEO G. Eric Knowles applauds the Black women rising despite adversity. In the Political Report, former state senator Dwight M. Bullard delivers a rousing tribute to Black women, and noted attorney Victor Demesmin encourages readers to evolve internally and externally. On the health front, Dr. Olayemi Osiyemi shares how readers can leverage lifestyle changes to create sustainable weight loss. For nearly 20 years, Legacy has delivered insights that give its audience a competitive advantage in their careers, businesses, health, and lifestyles. That tradition continues.
