"BE Modern Man profiles will be presented weekly along with exclusive content touching on the triumphs, challenges, and successes specific to men of color," says BLACK ENTERPRISE SVP/Executive Editor-at-Large Alfred Edmond Jr. "With their perspective in mind, we will cover personal experiences from men of color, relevant news, and refreshing lifestyle content. We're broadening the spectrum in which men of color are represented and providing a platform for their honest and positive stories."

BLACK ENTERPRISE will spotlight 100 men of diverse cultural backgrounds (African American, Afro-Latino, African, Caribbean, Asian, etc.) as BE Modern Men of Distinction, in celebration of their style, impact, and exceptional contributions to their communities, professions, nation, and the world. Beginning in June, profiles of these 100 exceptional men will be added to the BE Modern Man digital campaign that honors the essence, image, and accomplishments of today's man of color throughout the year. With daily features of today's leaders, executives, creatives, students, politicians, entrepreneurs, professionals, and agents of change, BE Modern Man highlights what these men share in common: the drive to set a high bar in tech, art, philanthropy, business and beyond.

In addition to being profiled online, the selected men will be recognized at the inaugural Black Men Xcel Summit, BLACK ENTERPRISE's newest event; a four-day celebration that honors today's man of color, set to take place Aug. 31 – Sept. 3, 2017, at PGA National Golf Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
