Top 6 Black Billionaires

This is a list of black billionaires from around the world. Robert Johnson and Michael Lee-Chin were the first black people to be listed on Forbes magazines annual ranking of the World's Billionaires in 2001.

On its 2011 edition of The World's Billionaires list, Forbes again list six black billionaires, three in Africa, one in the UK, one in the Middle East and one in North America. Mr. Michael Lee-Chin did not make the cut for 2011.
