2019 Young Futurists: Nominate the African-American Leaders Who Aren’t Waiting to Change the World


January 3, 2018

Do you know any young activists who are working to bring social justice to their communities? The bookish, nerdy kids who are using their skills to create what could be that next big thing in science and tech? That young, savvy entrepreneur who has gone beyond the lemonade stand to create his or her own business? The environmentalist who tackling climate change and environmental racism? Or the artistic kids who are using their creativity to speak to issues affecting their lives?

If you know any young game changers and leaders who fit these descriptions, now is the time to nominate them for The Root’s 2019 Young Futurists.

And because these overachievers are getting younger every year, we’re changing the age range to include those age 10 to 24 who excel in the fields of social justice and activism, arts and culture, enterprise and corporate innovation, science and technology, and green innovation. We’ll select 25 young leaders from among your nominations and announce them in March. Visit www.theroot.com to read the full article.
