BLACK ENTERPRISE unveils an editorial franchise like no other in media: 100 Most Powerful Executives in Corporate America. That's a long way from when BE produced our first list of "America's Hottest Managers" in 1988, 25 high-powered professionals that included only one division president and not a single woman. In this year's listing developed by our editors over several months, we identify an array of audacious game changers remaking global business in sectors ranging from fast food and financial services to manufacturing and technology. In fact, tonight this elite group will be honored by our magazine at an invitation-only event held at the New York Stock Exchange hosted by FedEx and NYSE Euronext. To give you a preview of the business leaders who made our exclusive roster published in our September issue, we share with you eight CEOs who operate some of the world's largest publicly-traded corporations.

Throughout history people have been persecuted for everything from gender and race to religion and sexuality. While there have been many strides made across the board, the latter has proven to be perhaps the last group to get a fair shake at equality—that’s especially true for double minorities who happen to be Black and gay. Thankfully, there have been brave individuals who have challenged society’s norms, ideals and deeply rooted fears to redefine what it means to be an LGBT [Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender] person of color in a historically oppressive world.

"I hope that talk becomes the theme of what we do in the United States from government across [other areas] so we can have a stronger nation with tremendous, insightful understanding," says Ray Taliaferro.
