The Network Journal's 40 Under Forty
In a 1933 poem entitled “Your Duty To-morrow,” Marcus Garvey wrote:
Forget not the past with all its good and ill reports. Contemplate your future by the experiences you have had, If you must strike to live, strike hard and sure.
At some point in their lives, the men and women profiled in the pages that follow decided not only that they had to strike to live, but also that they had to do so early. When they did, they struck hard, they struck sure. Their blows have been duly noted.
This year marks the eighth consecutive year that TNJ salutes a new cadre of 40 Under-Forty dynamic Black achievers.
