We are especially mindful and prayerful for the families of those whose lives were lost this weekend.  

Let us be especially kind and caring for our brown and Latinx brothers and sisters who are experiencing heightened levels of fear, anxiety, and trepidation because of the racism and bigotry that surround us.  

Let us take care of ourselves, and let us take very good care of each other.

Our logo that represents our collective work, and it was brilliantly captured by artist and designer Andrea Glover, an alumna of the University of South Carolina.   

Our logo  represents the five southern states where we launched our work, the logo colors of Partnering Schools, and the triangular shapes to reflect the sharpness of our collective mindpower.   

In partnership with Andrea, the Black Alumni Summit is launching n online pop-up shop from August 18 – 31, 2019.   Selected items will be available in the hues, tones, and colors of some of our Partnering Schools!!!

Purpose & collective work


  MISSION:  The Black Alumni Summit unifies and empowers black alumni individuals and groups through civic engagement, economics, and advocacy.   

The Summit was created in Atlanta in fall 2018 after black leaders across 10+ schools agreed that a collective voice is essential in moving our universities, alumni, and local communities forward. 


We reclaim the power of an "alumni network," and we define it in a way that ties us to principles that we, as black alumni, know well: unity, self determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith.
