20 Young African-American Phenoms!

Don’t you  just love to hear stories of people who make it a point to use their time & energy to create opportunities for others? Opportunities to advance, grow, and/or change for the better?  Tea & Breakfast compiled a list of 20 amazing young people doing just that. They are fairly young, African-American leaders with expertise in politics, tech, fashion, inspiration, fitness and more!

You too can use your talents, gifts and influence to help others in some shape or form. Everyone has a a gift that someone can benefit from. Be inspired.

Three of my favorites are:


Miss Zora Ball. At only 7 years old she became the youngest person to create a mobile video game in 2013. Bell developed the game to help children learn algebra concepts. Remember her name. You may one day download an app created by her.


Tianna Gaines-Turner. She speaks for millions of Americans living in poverty. She is the first individual living in poverty to provide expert testimony at a Washington, DC committee hearing on her experience as a full-time employee living in poverty. Despite being employed as a childcare worker for $10.88 an hour Gaines-Turner and her family struggle to make ends meet. Sadly, her story is not an isolated one. Gaines-Turner’s tireless fight for living wages and ending the war on hunger is helping to slowly change the perception and stereotypes of individuals living in poverty.


Trent Shelton. With a mission to promote lasting change that starts from the inside out, Trent established RehabTime, a Christian-based nonprofit organization with a holistic focus that aims to develop faith, self, fitness, relationships, and leadership. With a massive social media following, Shelton reaches over 35 million people through his daily messages and videos of hope, motivation, faith, and change.
