The term Black excellence refers to a high level of achievement, success, or ability demonstrated by an individual Black person or by Black people in general. Black excellence is the mindset, backed by continuous action, to look within ourselves and act in ways that progress our communities without discrediting the effect of forces outside of our communities.
