BAM Enterprises, a Company catering primarily to baby boomer women, has announced its Top 10 African-American Baby Boomers of 2007. African-American Baby Boomer author and expert Beverly Mahone is CEO of the Company. She says the list was created because African-Americans baby boomers tend to get overlooked when it comes to their achievements. Mahone says, “Our contributions are no less than anyone else so I felt it was necessary to come up with a Top 10.
