The Ebony Power 150


Moore, Bryan, Ebony


SINCE 1963, EBONY'S presentation of the "100+ Most Influential Black Americans" has been one of the most anticipated and most talked-about features in the magazine. It has been a Who's Who In Black America, highlighting those who have the capacity to influence a substantial segment of the Black population.

Over the years, the faces have changed, ideas have changed and the concept of influence itself has changed. And, today, the list is now changing with the times.

Now called "The EBONY Power 150: The Most Influential Blacks in America," we have expanded the annual compilation to reflect the power and the broad impact that African-Americans have on our society.

The list has also been reorganized to highlight those from politics, business, education, entertainment, public service and religion.

And this year, we are looking ahead to "The New Power," those from the next generation who will be running America in a few years. We also are reaching out to you online, asking for your favorites at www.ebonyjet.com.

So sit back and enjoy one of the most accurate collections of leadership, power and influence in Black America.
