its an insult to mention Mandela with those names.

In fact we blacks underate Mandela, he is a global icon outside Africa.


In my opinion the most influential Blackman was martin Luther king because he gave black Americans the freedom consciousness.

It was only a matter of time before that foundation would filter in to all blacks globally since it was possible in the greatest country in the world

Martin Luther I think talking of international. There is even Martin Luther day in the USA and it’s a public holiday. Without Martin Luther there is no Obama .

Including The Great Awolowo name on the list will not be a fair thing to do because his influence is limited to certain parts of Nigeria as well as some other places in Africa.

Nelson Mandela.

That man is not supposed to be a Blackman because his thought process was entirely different from that of a regular Blackman.

That's why the world will continue to celebrate him...even in death.

Just the composition of this list alone shows what low achievers black people are.

If an ALL TIME list includes the likes of Tupac in it then one can only surmise that black people are desperately short of real role models.

Where are the black Einsteins? Where are the black Isaac Newtons, Shakespeares, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerbergs, Steve Jobs, Alan Turings, Carl Sagans,Louis Pasteurs, Wright Brothers, Thomas Edison, Tessla, Elon Musk, etc etc?

If a list of most influential White men were to be compiled or influential Asians, it would be far more impressive and make a lot more sense than this joke of a list.
