The Root 100 List

I wanted to just give a quick shout out and a sincere 'thank you' to The Root's 2011 100 list of influential African Americans. The Root is a daily online magazine that provides the top news on opinion, politics, and culture from the African American perspective. Every year they publish a list of the 100 most influential African Americans in the nation, and I was honored to be featured in this year's list. Not only am I truly honored to be mentioned, but most importantly it give us a chance to acknowledge, even if just a fraction of, the others who are accomplishing great things in and for the African American community.
