Black Enterprise will present its 2nd annual Black Men XCEL Summit Aug. 29 through Sept. 2, at the PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. The Black Men XCEL Summit is an extraordinary celebration of enlightenment, empowerment, and excellence that will honor the essence of today’s man of color and the men and women who value their contributions and achievements.
The Summit will feature nationally recognized leaders and will provide attendees with thought-provoking sessions, a star-powered awards dinner, a summer concert, and, of course, golf and spa experiences. Confirmed speakers include Bishop T.D. Jakes, Potter’s House Ministries; Malik Yoba, actor, musician, and educator; Chris Spencer, actor and producer; Ed Gordon, Emmy Award-winning broadcaster; Dr. Janet Taylor, community psychiatrist; Jonathan Slocumb, comedian; and more.
The XCEL Awards will be a major highlight of the Summit. It will honor men who are the living embodiment of the purpose of the Black Men XCEL Summit: “Celebrating the best of who we are.”
The XCEL Awards recognize outstanding trailblazers whose achievements, influence, impact, and leadership have helped to open doors of opportunity and present an inspiring example of success for others, especially men of color. XCEL Awards will be presented to T.D. Jakes, Kenneth Chenault, former CEO of American Express and now chairman and managing director of General Catalyst; and Tommie Smith, legendary U.S. gold medalist and activist of the 1968 Olympics in Mexico. The accomplishments of these honorees will continue to set the standard of success to which others aspire to match and exceed.
