Forrest Tuff along with 401 new members was inducted into the distinguished class of Who's Who In Black Atlanta Seventeenth Edition. This is his second year in a row being listed in the publication. The ceremonious book reveal took place on July 28, 2017, at The Atlanta Marriott Marquis Hotel - 265 Peachtree Center Avenue at 7:00 pm.
Who's Who celebrates the accomplishments of highly distinguished African-Americans in various industries such as business, media, politics, tech, sports, entertainment, and more. The Atlanta event annually attracts between 500-700 people at the Who's Who Experience Networking Reception and Unveiling Ceremony.

"I am honored to be a Who’s Who In Black Atlanta honoree" states Tuff. "As an Atlanta native, I aspired to become one of the prestigious honorees and make a positive impact in my community."
Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, who was on-hand to celebrate the honorees, reflected on Who’s Who as a bright spot in his tenure as the city’s 59th mayor. “It’s always rewarding to recognize the exemplars in the city of Atlanta, who make our hometown one of the unique cities in the world and the leading cities in the world,” said Reed.
Real Times Media will host a variety of networking events planned to continually engage the Who’s Who audience and alumni, Lorraine Cochran-Johnson, “Who’s Who In Black Atlanta” associate publisher, said. “It is very important to me to harness the power present within this room tonight, to maximize relationships and provide opportunities to build your network and brand presence.”
