The Great 28: Black Charlotteans who are shaping our city


As we have done each February for the past three years, QCity Metro is celebrating Black History Month by acknowledging 28 Charlotte residents who have made our city a better place to live, work and play.

This year’s edition of The Great 28 includes entrepreneurs, activists, business executives, philanthropists, volunteers, nonprofit leaders, government employees and one member of our faith community.

In a city brimming with so much Black Excellence, how can we narrow our list to just 28 people? That’s never an easy task.

We start by asking our readers to nominate individuals they deem worthy of recognition. From there, a team made up of QCity Metro staff, readers and volunteers makes final selections. All who made our lists in 2021 and 2022 were ineligible for further recognition.

Our process is subjective, to be sure, and we acknowledge countless others who are deserving of our recognition.
