Shomari Wills

Hi everybody! My name is Shomari "Sho" Wills. I was born in Washington D.C. and grew up on 16th street aka the "Gold Coast", an enclave of black professionals, artists, and politicians. I attended Morehouse College and Columbia Journalism School, where I studied writing and broadcast journalism and won the Lynton Bookwriting fellowship in 2013. As a journalist, I worked at CNN where I was a producer on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon and at Good Morning America, where I won an Emmy as part of the production team in 2017. My first book Black Fortunes is the untold story of America's first black millionaires. It was in part inspired by my great-great Uncle John Drew a gilded age industrialist, Negro League baseball team owner, and one of the first Black millionaires in the Philadelphia area.
