“I’m rooting for everybody Black.” -Issa Rae, Emmys Red Carpet, 2017
In 2017, we saw more unapologetic Black people on screen and in entertainment than we’ve seen since the golden ages of the 90s–and a couple sexy leading men are paving the way.
This year’s sexiest man list is comprised of actors and musicians who are both vets in the game and shiny newcomers. From our all-time favorite chocolate actor Morris Chestnut, to our new found melanin-rich obsession actor Sterling K. Brown, there’s room for everybody on our #MCE list.
Actor Ray Fisher, joins the cohort of Black superheroes, embodying the iconic ‘Cyborg’ comic character in ‘The Justice League.’
People are finally starting to give Safaree his due as he continues to blaze the reality TV circuit while releasing fire rap bars. And rapper Dave East’s tender thug tendencies has his core fan base melting.
And of course, our list wouldn’t be complete without Kofi Siriboe, crowned our sexiest man last year. As this 23-year-old’s fame has exploded, so has his following.
The time has come! Who wins your vote for sexiest man of the year?
STERLING K. BROWN
MICHAEL B. JORDAN
