THE WORLD'S BLACK BILLIONAIRES IN 2021

Shalom Solomon

On Forbes real time billionaires list of billionaires in the world, Black billionaires constitute less than one percent of the billionaires world wide with a combined wealth of $48.9 billion as of the first quarter of this year. On the list, there are currently only 15 black billionaires. 


This drives to home the fact that there is a wide racial wealth gap between the black populace and the white populace of the world even in the area of financial wealth. 

But it also goes on to show that Black people are really hard working and industrious race; of the 15 black billionaires, 14 of them built their wealth from scratch. 


These self-made billionaires include female figures like Oprah Winfrey who is the only black female billionaire. 

This also still points to the large gap that exists between the financial achievement of women when compared to their male counterpart. 


A report from Forbes wealthiest women stated that most of the richest women in the world share their wealth either inherited or built with male partners.

Below are black people who made the list of billionaires and how they gained their financial status.
