Time Magazine has been doing it’s list of 100 Most Influential People for a long time. And every year they present us with people we know and love and are new to others. This year, the list consists of some of the most powerful Black people in America. Even the world. Among the chosen are President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama. Not to be outdone, JayZ and Beyoncé also turn up on the list. And one of America’s favorite storytellers, Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes, also carved out a place for herself.
When Time Magazine presents the list, they have a group of peers type up the write-up for each person. President Obama‘s write up is written by Hilary Clinton, JayZ‘s write up is written by New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, Shonda Rhimes is written by Oprah Winfrey. Big names and heavy hitters all around! Check out the full list of influential people here.
