A LETTER FROM THE EDITOR ORENDA MEDIA is back with another issue for the month of February! Unlike our first volume where we created different issues to split up one volume, our 6th Volume Issue #2 is dedicated to Black History Month! Nowadays, especially in the media industry, not many magazines dedicate an issue solely to Black History Month, so we felt that it was vital to include one. Not only do we have creative work for Black History Month, but we've also included shows, podcasts, movies, leaders, and books to shine a light on different black voices!
