I first wrote about the organization in December 2010, after they published their first Power List.

I am honored to have been selected for the Black Power List 2016 under the Culture category

because of my passion for and pursuit of information and activities centered on the African Diaspora in Paris.

At the beginning of the list, founder Adrianne George indicates:

This list ... is intended to acknowledge powerful black women in Europe and to inspire others to reach their full potential.

The Power List does not aim to assess rank but rather to showcase influential women who, in some cases well known and in others, are women who should be known.

Today, I want to name all the women from / living in France who have been included on the list since its inception, as well as the categories for which they were selected:

Aïssa Maïga - Lifestyle
Audrey Pulvar - Media
Christiane Taubira - Politics
Euzhan Palcy - Lifestyle
George Pau-Langevin - Politics
Hapsatou Sy - Business & Entrepreneurship
Huguette Fatna - Politics
Inna Modja - Lifestyle
Marie Ndiaye - Lifestyle
Maryse Conde - Literature
Rama Yade - Politics
Rokhaya Diallo - Social Activism
Rose Dieng-Kuntz - Science
Rougia Dia - Lifestyle
Safia Otokoré - Politics
