Every year, Forbes Magazine releases its “30 Under 30” 2022 list, which features trailblazers that cut across all industries and span from the United States of America down to Africa. The list highlights revolutionaries and innovators who are changing the world in the areas of media, art & style, food & drink, education, science, music, sports, healthcare, and a number of other industries.

To compile this year’s list, Forbes writers and editors evaluated more than 12,000 candidates on factors including funding, revenue, social impact, inventiveness, and potential. The 600 who made the cut are both an inspiration and a challenge to conventional wisdom.

Below is the list of Africans and people of African descent who are doing extraordinary things in the world:

It was viewed more than one million times and earned praise from Ava Duvernay, Tracee Ellis Ross, Vogue, Essence, and more. Since then, he’s spearheaded Nike’s Yardrunners campaign, which celebrates HBCUs, and produced shows alongside Kevin Durant and Tina Knowles.
