Innovative African-American Fellows

The MacArthur Foundation, which supports creative groundbreakers making a difference in their communities and beyond, announced on Sept. 17 the 2014 MacArthur “Genius” fellows. This year, four innovative African-Americans joined the list.  BET.com takes a look at some of the past and present African-American fellows.Dominique Zonyéé
