The Men of Excellence Awards recognizes local African-American men who inspire others through their vision, leadership, exceptional achievements, and participation in community service. They are men who exemplify extraordinary stature, poise and integrity who continue to break the mold and affect change in their professions and community.
These men influence those around them to go beyond the norm and strive for greatness. They are champions of our economic empowerment and diversity, the backbone of our business, religious and educational organizations, and driving forces in politics and service.
The Men of Excellence Awards and Induction Ceremony is an elegant evening that commemorates the successes of our most influential African-American men, attracting nearly 1,000 accomplished tastemakers, influencers, executives, heroes, and decision-makers from Southeast Michigan.
