Hollywood, Fla. (February 12, 2021) – 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, announces the release of its annual Black History issues within the Miami Herald and the Sun-Sentinel, respectively. The covers showcase portraits that reflect unprecedented historic accomplishments in government and electoral accomplishments. The publications reliably deliver compelling content that gives readers a competitive advantage in their community, professional, and entrepreneurial pursuits.
“On the heels of a historic presidential inauguration, African Americans are celebrating historical political firsts right here in South Florida,” said Russell Motley, editor-in-chief, Legacy magazines.
“As we celebrate past milestones of prominent African Americans who broke glass ceilings and knocked down doors, they’re not just making Black history. They’re making American history.”
Both issues are anchored with cover stories highlighting the barrier-breaking elections of influential leaders making history and shaping South Florida’s future. For the first time in county history, the Miami-Dade County Board of County Commissioners includes five Black commissioners. Recent election results affirmed that Broward County was also in the mood to make history. Voters elected the county’s first Black sheriff, supervisor of elections, public defender, and state attorney. Additionally, West Palm Beach welcomed its first Black mayor-appointed city administrator.
The attractive publication includes an inspiring column from Daniella Levine Cava, the first woman elected strong mayor of Miami-Dade County; a challenge from Palm Beach County Commissioner Mack Bernard; an essay from Miami-Dade School Board Member Dr. Steve Gallon sharing his perspective on the recent riot in the U.S. Capitol; insights from experts and community leaders on COVID-19, Alzheimer Disease, career success, economic development, and ways to advance South Florida’s Black community.
