Recognizing those uniquely talented African American movers and shakers who are under the age of 40 and active participants in the upbuilding of their communities, whether it be in the board room or their neighborhoods, is the premise for which the FAB 40 award was established. It uplifts young Black professionals, while dispelling the negative image that is often depicted by mainstream media.
On Thursday, March 10, at the Fairmont Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh, the New Pittsburgh Courier will add 40 new names to its elite list of recipients at the 2016 FAB 40 Awards Reception, which will commence at 6 p.m.
“This year we have an outstanding list of young people under the age of 40 from a variety of different professions,” said Rod Doss, editor and publisher of the New Pittsburgh Courier. “All of them contribute to the uplift of this community and possess the promise of better things to come. Please join us as we salute their many endeavors.”
FAB 40 recipients are selected from nominations made by Courier readers and members of the community.
