The CORE 100 was unveiled in a series of communications that led to the full presentation in the CORE 100 Special Issue Magazine on Feb. 1.
The addition of the CORE 100 Most Influential Blacks Today to the CORE brand supports the vision of former professional baseball player, coach, and executive; and magazine founder, Bo Porter, to address the void of Black-owned, historical and culturally diverse publications.
“CORE Magazine blazes a trail with uplifting articles and a showcasing of unsung heroes often not found in mainstream media outlets,” the magazine noted in a news release.
CORE – Champion of Real Excellence – debuted on Oct. 1, 2020.
Each quarterly issue contains distinct and recurring feature stories like “Ball2Business,” former athletes who successfully transitioned to the business sector; and “ME2me, professionals providing inspiration by sharing their lessons learned to their “younger selves.”
