No disrespect meant
I saw that you meant what you wrote and I want you to broaden your mind some more
Check my own list for instance, read about the men I put there, and learn some more
I am not saying I know it all, but, you can learn a thing or two, and adopt or discard
You will definite remove some names if not all from your list
Cheers
And, I am a sis
Alright sis

cheers !

Bob Marley by far. He is known worldwide and his work lives on and still very relevant till tomorrow. All the other greats are not on his level in terms of coverage and relevance of work

I seriously doubt that, he’s of middle eastern heritage and would look more like the present day Israeli of whom you’ll hardly see anyone of which is black apart from our ‘Biafrans’ claiming to be Jews.
Original Jews/Israelis were not Light skinned. The Jews/Israelis you see today are as a result of migration and intermarriages! Christ was more "Ethiopian" . There's a difference between a person's Race and a person's Ethnicity!

I would personally pick micho jacko... His influence cut across the world and his name still rings bell even in the ears of New generation. Others like king Jr and Mandela had their influence just within their regions of America and Africa respectively. Tupac existence was short and before his influence would become vasr hr was gone. On and On. But my opinion picks micheal Jackson among the listed names. Obama shouldn't even make the list. What spectacular thing was he known for than being the usa President? Positions others have occupied and will still do. But till today no one has wore the shoe micheal Jackson left behind.

OkunrinOloro:
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.

During these white people's time, our forefathers were busy being shipped into slavery...and those who weren't were being hunted by the image of it.

They are our heroes for bringing us outta bondage that you probably would still have been, had they not taken the bold step.
