Little Miss Flint Makes The #EBONYPower100
A young activist is being honored for her accomplishments while seemingly simultaneously being snubbed.
EBONY is once again celebrating their “Power 100” honoring the nation’s most influential black people in categories like arts, sports, business, community service, and education. Included in the list are Michelle Obama, Andrew Gillum, Steph Curry, and Cardi B.
This year the publication once again asked the public to vote for their People’s Choice winner and the nominees included “Hidden Figures” challenge creator Taylor Richardson, Lincoln Stephens of the Marcus Graham Project and Little Miss Flint, Mari Copeny.
Ultimately Mari took the top spot after the public voted for the tiny activist whose raised thousands of dollars and donated water to her hometown of Flint, Michigan.
Now, however, it looks like Mari won’t be in attendance at the annual #EBONY100 gala, not because of her age, but because the event is “private” and not open to the public.
People are outraged and demanding that EBONY let little Mari attend.
The Chris Tucker hosted gala is reportedly taking place this Friday.
Do YOU think Little Miss Flint should be there???
