The Best and the Brightest 

 American Mensa literally recognizes the brightest minds in the country—those who have scored in the top 2 percent of the general population on its standardized test. There are more than 57,000 members of the prestigious organization in the U.S. alone, and their diverse backgrounds include teachers, athletes, CEOs and homemakers—362 of those members are African-American. Here’s a look at nine of the group’s most distinguished Black members.—Britt Middleton
