“Surrounded by black excellence and humbled to be honored by a publication I admired as a small boy, Black Enterprise!” writes Alex. “Last night’s 2019 Black Men XCEL Awards were a strong reminder of what comes great opportunity leads to great responsibility, while to also honor those who blazed the path for an inclusive and sustainable future.”
The Black Men XCEL Summit is a four-day “gathering of inspiration and enlightenment that recognizes the contributions, leadership and excellence of black men.” In its third year, the summit is sponsored by FedEx, with presenting sponsors AT&T and Prudential; platinum sponsor Georgia-Pacific/Koch Industries; corporate sponsors Apple and Walmart; and gold sponsor Accenture. Held at the JW Turnberry Miami Resort and Spa in Miami, Florida, the event “uplifts men of color by enriching them with opportunities to learn and network while spoiling them with leisure, fun and relaxation,” writes Black Enterprise.
