The stories of black excellence are incomplete without the voices of our young people of color, who have been shaping the country since its founding. Their collective stories of black excellence in America is not defined by age. Today and beyond, we joyously celebrate the youth playmakers and groundbreakers who are making lasting strides in technology, philanthropy, art, entrepreneurship, sports, and many other facets of American society. Their passion and unwavering commitment to inclusivity and progress have shown the world the bold brilliance of blackness, and its irreplaceable magic.
In celebration of Black Excellence, we’re spotlighting youth under the age of 17 who just so happen to be black, bold, brilliant, and built for success. These rising playmakers, thought leaders, creatives, and entrepreneurs are making a tangible difference on this generation and those to follow. Collectively, they are the leaders of tomorrow who exemplify the vastness and richness of our culture.
