Since our founding in 1909, the New York Amsterdam News has served as a platform capturing New York City's thriving and historic Black community. Continuing our legacy of celebrating the city's Black experience,  The Black New Yorkers aims to highlight those in our community making a difference and leaving their mark.

Our weekly "Black New Yorkers" feature has been a staple in our print publication for many years. Those featured include well-known politicians, celebrities, community leaders, business moguls and young people. However, we've also featured little-known movers and shakers in our neighborhoods making a big impact.

The new digital home of this Amsterdam News mainstay will showcase the best and brightest in NYC's Black community.
