Forty-two-year-old, New York City Councilman Jumaane Williams, who represents the 45th council district, is EVERYBODY’S, the Caribbean-American, Person of the Year for 2018.
Since the inception of this magazine in January, 1977, EVERYBODY’S has named its Person of the Year. Years ago, the magazine held gala dinners in their honor. Persons of the Year who attended EVERYBODY’S dinner included the late Nobel Laureate Sir Arthur Lewis, members of Congress Shirley Chisholm and Mervyn Dymally and several Caribbean prime ministers.
In recent years, EVERYBODY’S simply announces its Person of the Year. Last year’s Person(s) of the year were the ferocious Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
