“The big secret in life is that there is no big secret. Whatever your goal, you can get there if you’re willing to work.” – Oprah Winfrey
Most of the billionaires that we think of tend to be in the news constantly. Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett (just to name a few). But there are a select few that tend to be overlooked. Today, I wanted to have a focus on black billionaires. There may only be a handful of them (that we know of), but it is important for black kids and young adults to see that they are represented amongst those who are affluent.
Here is a list of black billionaires in alphabetical order. Of course, there may be some that I am missing, but don’t be afraid to let me know!
