African Excellence Personified

This fashion-conscious, philanthropic event celebrates individuals who are amplifying Africa and the diaspora by excelling in their respective professional and creative fields.

During The Ceremony

Certificates of recognition by the U.S Congress are issued to the selected candidates who have exhibited distinction in such categories as business, entertainment, fashion, and healthcare to name a few.

Historically, our team has done the work to find these amazing individuals but we are looking to do things differently in 2024. We are reaching out to you, our community, to nominate people who you think deserve to be honored at the next Afro Ball.  

In addition to our Excellence Awards, our highest award of the night is called the Amplifier of the Year Award. This award goes to a group or a person who has leveraged their platform to promote culture from the African continent.
