WASHINGTON - The Root has announced its first-ever edition of The Root's Young Futurists, an exclusive list that spotlights 25 outstanding individuals, ages 16-21, whose active ambition to change the world leaves them poised to become the African-American innovators of tomorrow. The Root's 2011 Young Futurist list is sponsored exclusively by AT&T and will be featured throughout Black History Month.

Honorees for the inaugural Young Futurist list were selected by The Root's staffers who narrowed down hundreds of suggestions from schools, universities, national sororities, fraternities and civil rights groups into a list of 25 exceptional young leaders.

"The Root's Young Futurist list is an exciting indicator that the next generation of African-Americans is full of talent and dedicated to innovation," said Joel Dreyfuss, managing editor of The Root. "These inspiring youth are worthy of great praise and admiration, and we're excited to have this opportunity to introduce them to the wider public."

The Root's 2011 Young Futurists represent young leaders within the green movement, science and technology, social justice, business and the arts.

One Young Futurist will be highlighted each day throughout the month of February, to coincide with Black History Month.
