Celebrating Black Women: Powerful Equalizers
Illustrations by WILLIAM POPE/POPE PHOENIX

In the spirit of Black History Month and inspired by the new series on CBS, The Equalizer, we are calling out some of the greatest equalizers in history, Black women. Serving as role models to us all, this amazing group features artists, activists, analysts and actors—but they are more than famous faces, they are today’s leaders.

Creating cultural shifts and taking the first brave steps into uncharted territories, these Black women are individually and collectively changing our world for the better. Please join us as honor these trailblazers who are reshaping and redefining the narrative for all of us through their talent and their courage, across every category.
