Dr. Kimberly Monroe Ph.D
For Grambling University Homecoming, HBE traveled to Dr. Monroe’s alma mater to give her the flowers she deserved. We celebrated with Dr. Monroe and her community during this special time to showcase all the work she has done for her alma mater through the years. From celebrating the unveiling of her HBE mural to leading this year’s Homecoming parade, we also gave her community a chance to see the upcoming adidas Community curriculum she has coming soon.

We wanted to honor the rich history of Black people. We also wanted to shine light on accomplishments happening today. This balance of inspiration and education is what inspired us to create Honoring Black Excellence as a year-round heartbeat of authentic storytelling and celebration.

RICH WITH PURPOSE
The colors for Honoring Black Excellence were chosen for their impact and historical symbolism — Purple to celebrate the regal past of Black kings and queens, and Orange to represent the sacrifice and strength in spirit that never dies.
