There’s something about seeing Black women thrive that makes us beam from ear to ear with joy! Forbes just dropped its annual America’s Richest Self-Made Women list, and we are over the moon to see some of our favourites top the list.
With the ever-changing economy, Forbes revealed a significant dip in last year’s combined net worth of the nation’s richest self-made women. This year, that sum is $111 billion, a 6 per cent decline from 2021. Due to the decrease, the admission cutoff for the annual list went from $225 million to $215 million.
With careers in industries that range from entertainment to sports, along with entrepreneurship, these ladies serve as an inspiration that anything is possible. Look at AfroTech’s breakdown of the beautiful Black women who topped the list.
