Celebrating the Struggle.

Reaching the Resolution.

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.

–Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Real Black Excellence is a non-profit community organization. We exist to help other organizations, businesses, families, and individuals work together as a community in the community—through the acknowledgment of giftings—while promoting individual autonomy.

Community is created by the proper functioning and interconnectivity of giftings, special talents, and special aptitudes—from individuals, families, and businesses organizations alike. We exist for the reimplementation and restoration of the foundational principles which make up community.

Our purpose is to assist in the understanding, development, and utilization of native gifting for the upbuilding of our community, and our world. The operation of each person’s gift supplies to others what they need while creating space to receive what other gifts provide. The introduction of these community principles (Common, Commune, Shared, or CCS) is ultimately designed to produce an interactive working in our youth and make a direct, effective, and traceable increase in education and in the community.

On behalf of Real Black Excellence, we thank you for honoring us with the opportunity to serve our community. Together, we can break through every barrier into a brighter tomorrow!
