Regal, Powerful, Feminine...African American Woman CEOs*

As a budding entrepreneur, thanks to the many projects I have going on right now, I love giving props to my fellow young black women making power moves and establishing powerful relationships.  I'm excited for African Americans as a whole for the presence we are making in the business world!!  HOWEVER, THIS POST is all about the ladies...those black women running corporations, signing checks, and calling shots!!  I WANT TO BE LIKE THEM!!

This is Ursula Burns.  She is the FIRST black, female CEO of a Fortune 500 company!  She is running Xerox!!  Hailing from New York like most people everywhere, she started at the bottom as an intern in the 80s!! 

Sheila Johnson!  If you watch BET then you should know who she is..the ex-wife of former BET owner Robert "Bob" Johnson.  Anywho, Sheila has her own accolades to be proud of she is the Owner, President of, and governor of the WNBA's Washington Mystics 2.) has a stake of ownership also in the Washington Wizards and Capitals, 3.) and is the CEO of Salamander Hospitality, a company that runs a slew of resorts across the Southeastern part of the country!

Cathy Hughes!! She is the owner of both Radio One and TV One!  If you're from the DMV, you listen to a few of her stations all the time and who doesn't love "Unsung" on TV One every Monday night...Cathy Hughes is a media force!
