The Black Voices You Need To Follow On Twitter

In honor of Black History Month, I searched the Twitterverse to compile a list of black leaders who tweet like nobody's business and drop the mic afterward. They are all too accomplished and too incredible for me to introduce in this brief article, so I'll divide them into a few general groups and then let them speak for themselves. After all, you are what you tweet. Isn't that how the saying goes?
