Businessman and investor Robert F. Smith, with a net worth of $6.7 billion, and World Wide Technology founder David Steward, worth $5.8 billion, ranked 141 and 182 on the recently issued list, respectively, Black Enterprise reported.

Conspicuously absent is media mogul Oprah Winfrey ($2.6 billion) and former President Donald Trump ($2.5 billion), both of whom fell short of the list’s $2.9 billion cutoff.
