Black Marketers To Watch


For years I admired Adweek Annual Power List: 100 Cutting-Edge CEOs in Marketing, Media, Branding, and Tech. In 2018, the lack of racial and gender diversity inspired me to create a Black Marketers List through the African American Marketing Association.

In 2021, we started with the 50 Black Marketers On The Rise highlighting our leaders, content creators, designers, and strategists. However, this year we decided to do a brand refresh with the title 50 Black Marketers To Watch. Why? Because we are here, we are now. We are doing the work and our resume speaks for itself. Don’t believe me, just watch!

Nominations for the Black Marketers List run during the first quarter of each year. Individuals were nominated by their peers or had the option to self-nominate. The list comes out during the second quarter. This year we made a major push to release the list prior to the Marketing For The Culture Summit.

I know this is just a fraction of the stellar Black talent within our community. Moreover, I hope you take a moment to connect with these individuals online or in person. Consider our list for your next hire, your next project, or a speaker for your next event; these are the Black Marketers To Watch.

I believe in you!
