We’ve had a great year. But, none of it would have been possible without the efforts of fearless young people and strivers, heroines fighting the hard battles, courageous companies, design geniuses, and the like.

From the founding of our nation, those in power have systematically denied diverse innovators the opportunity to grow and thrive. It is irrefutable that people of color, consigned to the very bottom of the economic ladder, had the same entrepreneurial spirit and burning bright ideas. Yet, generation after generation had to settle for scraps, yearning to break free of the restraints placed on their labors.Read More
