MN’s Picks For Smart Black Women Of Twitter

August 27, 2013  |  

Black twitter has done it again and this time the cause is noble. After Fast Company published an article on 25 of the Smartest Women on Twitter, Feminista Jones clapped back with a list of her own. See the issue with Fast Company’s list was almost all of the women were white, and none were black. Moreover, nearly all of the 25 ladies listed are CEOs, making for a rather narrow definition of what it means to be a smart woman, if you catch our drift. Well we’re happy to see Feminsta didn’t take that lying down and as a result #SmartBlackWomenOfTwitter is now trending online. In honor of this positive occasion, we’ve come up with our own list of Smart Black Women you should be following on Twitter, like:
