The Root’s Young Futurists of 2017 Will Put Your Life to Shame
They are young, gifted and black.
They are part of a generation that is poised to change the future. We know this because they are already changing the present.
Meet The Root’s Young Futurists of 2017!
For the past six years, we have honored 25 of the best and the brightest young people, ages 15 to 22, in the fields of social justice/activism, enterprise and corporate innovation, arts & culture, science and tech, and green innovation.
What these 25 men and women have accomplished at such an early age will leave those of us who are twice as old asking ourselves, “What have I done with my life?” And what’s even more amazing, they are just getting started.
