Let’s take some time out to celebrate a little melanin magic! Ebony magazine has just released their Power 100 list and some of your faves have made the cut.

The annual Ebony Power 100 list salutes the remarkable achievements of Black professionals, entertainers and civic leaders. Among the game changers honored this year are Beyoncé, Colin Kaepernick, Kevin Hart, Serena Williams, Nas, Solange, Chance The Rapper, Carmelo Anthony and Issa Rae.

“These 100 individuals are not only authoring their own success stories, they are leveraging their platforms in order to improve various facets of Black life and render us visible on the world stage,” says Editor-in-Chief, Senior Vice President and Head of Digital Editorial Kyra Kyles.

The issue, which is themed “power in numbers,” reflects how important it is for our influencers to be focused on our collective community, and also on opening doors for others.

The 2016 Power 100 list will appear in the December issue of Ebony. The full list can be found at EBONY.com.

Katt Williams Is Ready For His Comeback: “My Only Goal Is Getting Better”

Katt Williams is ready for his triumphant return!

After a series of arrests and bizarre incidents in 2016 that seemed to overshadow his public persona, Williams told HipHollywood he’s getting back to work and putting his personal issues behind him.

“Remember none of those things have ever been about work,” he said when asked if he hopes his new projects will overshadow his past missteps. “It’s more about having to deal with situations that are purposely thrown in your direction, and so I’ve been successful in the fact that I’m not nearly as good as I’m going to be,” he explained.

But if you’re thinking the 46-year-old comedian is in denial about his issues, he says absolutely not.

“I’m not one of those people that doesn’t recognize he’s stumbled,” he asserts. “I embrace the stumble because I know I’m going to come back faster than before, so my only goal is getting better at all points.”

And with six projects slated for release including the comedy, Father Figure with Owen Wilson and Ed Helms, Williams appears to be back on the right track.

“I’m really in each of these comebacks trying to be a better person than the person that left, and if you liked that person this is just a better version than that because that’s what I’m on.”

You can see Katt dishing more positivity in the exclusive clip below, and be sure to see Father Figures when it hits theaters December 22.
