From Africa to America, contributors tell their stories

As an avid reader of thrilling stories, I find Orato to be a place where one can learn about other communities, individuals, and their ways of life.

Eric Althoff has only written one first-person news story for Orato World Media. Yet, that eyewitness account goes down as one of the most viewed in Orato history.

Former Racist Emerges from the Dark proved a magnetic story for Orato’s readers around the world.

An American journalist, Althoff reflects on the process.

“[Writing for Orato] was an especially invigorating experience. I worked harder on that story than on nearly any piece of journalism yet to spring from my pen.”

Athoff spent the better part of a year shopping the story around before Orato said yes. 

“Dark Sevier’s amazing story was too unique and too singular not to be shared. I couldn’t be prouder of the result. I thank the editors for taking a chance on me and Dark.”
