New season will profile John Legend, Van Jones and Ryan Coogler, among others
“The Root 100″ has received a second season from Earvin “Magic” Johnson’s ASPiRE network.
The series, which is hosted by CNN anchor Suzanne Malveaux (pictured) and celebrates America’s most important African American influencers aged 25-45, will return Nov. 27 at 8 p.m. ET.
“‘The Root100′ presents a fascinating, in-depth look at two dozen extraordinary African Americans, whose professional work and personal contributions reverberate throughout every aspect of our community and the world at large,” ASPiRE’s general manager Paul Butler said of the renewal.
The second season will profile 24 personalities who’ll discuss intimate moments, turning points in their lives and their aspirations to affect change. Among those being profiled are R&B singer John Legend, “Crossfire” host Van Jones and “Fruitvale Station” director/writer Ryan Coogler.
