Time magazine unveiled its 100 Most Influential People last week, and some of Black America’s best and brightest made the coveted list. Here’s a look at some of the picks.
A highlight of the Time’s 100 Most Influential People in the World Gala was the special remarks delivered by the First Lady and honoree Mrs. Michelle Obama. Stunning in a floor-length Michael Kors gown, the First Lady commended those unsung heroes who tirelessly volunteer to help others while she announced the creation of the Social Innovation Fund as part of the new Serve America Act.
“[This fund will] help innovative nonprofit groups and social entrepreneurs expand their successful approaches to tackling our most pressing national challenges.”
