Black Excellence Night is establishing its mark as one of the premier events in the city of Dallas that celebrates leaders, professionals, and businesses throughout our black communities. Black Excellence Night (BEN) is an annual networking event that recognizes Black Leaders and Businesses that are positively impacting their communities through their professional and philanthropic endeavors. BEN provides attendees the opportunity to network with elected officials, C-suite executives, black business owners, and professionals. BEN also provides an open forum for black businesses and brands to promote their product and services to a supportive audience of professional decision-makers.
