Join us on Tuesday, February 14, for a presentation by Rev. Dr. Alexander Gee, CEO and Founder of The Center For Black Excellence and Culture. Dr. Gee describes this project as  the culmination of a lifetime of listening to hundreds of Black influencers in the Black community and fulfilling his life's work of challenging structures that impede diversity and advance Black excellence and prosperity through cultural celebrations, leadership development, and Black history education. Garnering nationwide attention and support, fundraising efforts for the Center have already raised over $23 million in less than one year.
