What People Say

“Black America is refreshing its narrative in a time where global circumstance calls on the multitudes to be excellent, in deed and character…It’s an honor to join with black voices across the country whose collective goal is to expand black territories, and dictate our place to the world, instead of being told.”

Khary Turner, Executive Director of the Coleman A. Young Foundation

I know we are in increasingly intense times, but knowing there are truly good people out there fighting for the change I wish for really does give me hope. This Summit involves riveting conversation that is thought-provoking and inspires action.”
