Time magazine on Tuesday unveiled its 17th annual list of the world’s 100 most influential people, which includes immunologist Dr. Anthony Fauci, rapper Megan Thee Stallion, actress Gabrielle Union and athlete Dwyane Wade.
“The Time 100 has always been a mirror of the world and those who shape it,” he said. “While you will certainly find people who wield traditional power on this year’s list — heads of state, CEOs, major entertainers — it also includes many extraordinary, lesser-known individuals who seized the moment to save lives, build a movement, lift the spirit, repair the world. ... Their work challenges each of us to wield our own influence toward a world that is healthier, more resilient, more sustainable and just.”
Eight covers highlight notable members of the list, including one each for Fauci, Megan Thee Stallion, the Weeknd, Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai, New York nurse Amy O’Sullivan, and Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen, according to a news release. In addition, Union and Wade, who are married, share a cover, while Black Lives Matter founders Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi share another.

Other public figures listed include President Donald Trump, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris, Attorney General William Barr, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, according to the magazine.
Felsenthal also said the issue includes a tribute to the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who made the list in 2015.
