Students at any age, birth through adulthood, deserve opportunities—opportunities afforded by a high-quality school experience that prepares them for careers with family sustaining wages and opportunities for advancement in the global 21st century workforce. The White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans and Ebony Magazine are proud to present, “The 2014 Summits on Educational Excellence for African Americans.” We appreciate the support of the Center for the Study of Race & Equity in Education for sponsoring our Philadelphia summit.

  2. Highlighting individuals and organizations who are successfully supporting African American educational excellence;
  3. Supporting community engagement by creating opportunities for parents, grandparents, guardians and caring adults to increase the number of African American’s who graduate from high school prepared for future success.
