We Want Nominees for The Root 100

Send us names of talented individuals who deserve recognition.


Once again The Root, the news and analysis site with a black perspective, is seeking nominations for our 2010 Root 100 list. The list was first published last year and helped identify many talented individuals who have not received the recognition they deserve. We are seeking blacks of outstanding achievement between the ages of 25 and 45 who live and work in the United States. Winners from 2009 are not eligible. Please fill out our nomination form(s) no later than August 1, 2010. You can view our list from 2009 here.

If you have any questions, e-mail us here.
