Top 10 Richest Black Women in the World for 2023: The list of the ten wealthiest women worldwide in 2023. There were no African-American women on their list. Considering the accomplishments of Black women such as Oprah Winfrey, Beyonce, and Rihanna, this comes as a surprise to many of us.

A notable observation is that a considerable number of the women included in Forbes’ list possess inherited or generational wealth. The majority of black women who have amassed millionaire or billionaire status have done so through their own efforts. So why does this disparity exist? Certain authorities contend that it stems from systemic prejudice. It appears that wealth lists invariably prioritize the recognition of achievements among White Americans over that of Black Americans.

However, the focus of this article is on African-American women who have amassed wealth and achieved success through their own efforts. Examine our compilation of the most affluent African American women worldwide in 2022, which will almost certainly persist into 2023.

Top 10 Richest Black Women in the World for 2023:

The following African American women, according to data from 2022, are projected to be among the wealthiest in the globe by 2023:

1. Oprah Winfrey

Our list of the wealthiest African-American women in the world is headed by Oprah Winfrey. This will not come as a surprise to the majority of readers, given the extensive documentation of Oprah’s affluence and success. Oprah has achieved considerable acclaim and recognition across various mediums, including film, television, books, magazines, and talk programs. Additionally, she operates a network under the moniker Harpo. A rough estimate places Oprah’s net worth at $2.7 billion.

2. Rihanna

Forbes formally designated Rihanna a “billionaire” status in 2021. Although Rihanna’s singing career is wildly successful, the majority of her fortune is derived from her fashion and cosmetics lines, Fenty Cosmetics and Savage x Fenty. The estimated value of Rihanna’s personal wealth is $1.7 billion. The value of Fenty Beauty, in which she maintains a 50% ownership stake, is $2.8 billion. She also owns a portion of Savage x Fenty, an enterprise estimated to be worth approximately $270 million.

3. Serena Williams

The phenomenal success of tennis superstar Serena Williams is common knowledge. However, what few are aware of is that she has an estimated net worth of $225 million. Including prize money from competitions, Williams has amassed approximately $94 million. However, in addition to being a shrewd businesswoman, she also owns apparel lines and investments in the UFC and the Miami Dolphins. Additionally, Williams is collaborating with Amazon Studios on a life-themed documentary series.

4. Janice Bryant Howroyd

Although Howroyd may not be as widely recognized as Beyonce or Oprah, she certainly merits a spot on our list. Howroyd is the founder and chief executive officer of the personnel solutions company ActOne. While ActOne has achieved remarkable success independently, Howroyd has also demonstrated astuteness in his real estate investment choices. Approximate estimates place her net worth at $285 million. In contrast, ActOne’s estimated $950 million net worth firmly establishes her as the third-place candidate.

5. Sheila Johnson

Sheila Johnson accumulated a substantial fortune through her co-founding of BET, the Black Entertainment Network. In 1979, the network debuted as a cable television channel. BET was acquired by Viacom for $2.9 billion in 2001. Johnson, who is the CEO of Salamander Hotels and Resorts, began investing in hotel ownership after selling her shares. Johnson has amassed the first-ever $1 billion net worth among African-American women. Forbes approximates that of her net worth at $770 million.

6. Beyonce

Beyonce is, by many accounts, an iconic African-American woman. During her adolescence, she ascended to prominence with the group Destiny’s Child. She achieved greater success in adulthood through an apparel line, acting, a solo career, and marriage to Jay-Z, among other endeavours. Beyonce is estimated to have a net worth of approximately $500 million.

7. Ngina Kenyatta

Ngina Kenyatta is an additional name that may not be readily recognizable to you. However, her name may be familiar to you: the First Lady of Kenya. She is the mother of the current president and the widow of former president Jomo Kenyatta. With a net worth of $515 million, she is regarded as one of the wealthiest women in Africa and ranks among the wealthiest Black women worldwide on our list. In addition to controlling extensive estates in Africa, Kenyatta also owns one of the country’s largest dairy farms. Additionally, she has investments in finance, business, and television.

In diverse domains, every black woman on our list has achieved remarkable accomplishments. Each has surmounted obstacles and achieved icon status in their respective communities and around the globe through diligent effort.
