EBONY Magazine Unveils Its 2014 EBONY Power 100 List

EBONY® Magazine today unveiled its annual EBONY Power 100 list, which salutes the remarkable achievements of African-Americans in 2014. Among the game changers honored this year are television mogul Oprah Winfrey, NBA player LeBron James, Wal-Mart CEO Rosalind Brewer, television producer Shonda Rhimes, music producer Pharrell Williams, actresses Audra McDonald and Laverne Cox, comedian Kevin Hart and ballerina Misty Copeland.  Honorees from or located in the Detroit area include comedian Keegan-Michael Key, Pastor Michael Andrew Owens of Bethel Baptist Church East and journalist Stephen Henderson of The Detroit Free Press.
Quincy Jones –composer, record producer, artist, film producer, arranger, conductor, instrumentalist, TV producer, record company executive, magazine founder, multi-media entrepreneur and humanitarian –will receive this year’s EBONY Achievement Award. The gala celebration will take place in Los Angeles on November 19, at the Avalon Hollywood.
The EBONY editorial team selected the 100 most influential African-Americans in the country.  These achievers have made noteworthy accomplishments over the past year.  The list of outstanding leaders highlights individuals from a variety of fields, including business, medicine, sports, media, religion, the creative arts and more. As the curator of the African-American experience, EBONY is proud to showcase these individuals.
By being named to the EBONY Power 100, these leaders are honored and recognized for changing the course of history and making an enduring and lasting impact in their communities and the world.
“The EBONY team is very excited to recognize the accomplishments of the honorees on this year’s Power 100 list,” said Mitzi Miller, editor-in-chief of EBONY Magazine.  “From grassroots to the corporate boardrooms, all of the selected individuals have made a significant impact on both the African-American and overall American culture. They are truly an inspiration to us all to keep striving.”
The 2014 Power 100 list will appear in the December issue of EBONY on newsstands the week of November 10. The full list of the EBONY Power 100 can also be found at EBONY.com. here.
The December EBONY is also dedicated to the topic of race.  The publication developed an analysis of race relations in America today, and provides a statistical review as to how and why race still matters.
“Normally, our December issue is dedicated to the biggest achievers of the year,” added Miller.  “However, throughout 2014, the issue of race has been an ongoing conversation and at the top of every news cycle.  Our job at EBONY is to identify these trends and encourage results-driven conversations on the issues.”
To supplement the feature, EBONY.com will also feature five videos on race relations, which will include interviews with thought-leaders on the topic ranging from Dr. Cornell West, Dr. Ben Carson, Marc Lamont Hill, Melissa Harris Perry, Al Sharpton, Julian Bond, Marian Wright Edelman, and Dr. Steve Perry
