Philadelphia Tribune Names Most Influential Blacks

 PHILADELPHIA – The Philadelphia Tribune, the nation’s oldest and the Greater Philadelphia Region’s largest newspaper serving the African-American community, will include in its edition on Sunday, September 19, 2010, its annual list of the City of Philadelphia’s “10 Most Influential African Americans.”

 
The listing, which will be published in the newspaper’s Sunday supplement, The Tribune Magazine, includes three elected officials: State Representative Dwight Evans, U.S. Congressman Chaka Fattah and Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter; two education leaders: School Superintendent Dr. Arlene Ackerman and School Reform Commission Chairman Robert Archie; four businesspersons: A. Bruce Crawley, president, Millennium 3 Management Inc.; Willie Johnson, founder and chairman, PRWT Services Inc.; Michael Rashid, president and CEO, AmeriHealth Mercy Family of Companies; and Ahmeenah Young, president and CEO, Pennsylvania Convention Center Authority; and one community/civic leader: J. Whyatt Mondesire, president, Philadelphia NAACP.
 
In this year’s announcement, The Philadelphia Tribune further recognized Michael A. Rashid with its National Achievement Award, for his impact on the African-American community, on a national scale.
 
In addition to the list of “Most Influentials,” the Tribune also published a list of “10 People Under 40 to Watch,” 82 “African-American Leaders,” and 37 “Movers & Shakers” of the Delaware Valley, who demonstrate leadership beyond their positions.
 
According to Tribune Magazine Editor Shonda McClain, the selection process for the “Most Influential” issue extends over a six-month period, with final recommendations made by a blue-ribbon panel of African-American professional and civic leaders.
 
Commenting on this year’s “Most Influential” issue, Tribune Publisher Robert W. Bogle said: “The individuals acknowledged in this year’s edition are true leaders in their chosen professions and their work directly speaks to the specific issues of the black community in this city and extends nationwide. I have been especially impressed, this year, with the drive and the spirit of the awardees in the “10 Under 40 to Watch” category, most of whom have already made significant contributions to this city and beyond.”
