About

BE Modern Man is an integrative program that honors the essence, image and accomplishments of today’s man of color.

With  features of today’s leaders, executives, creatives, students, politicians, entrepreneurs, professionals and agents of change – these men share the common thread of creating a new normal while setting the bar in tech, art, philanthropy, business and beyond. The  BE Modern Man is making a positive impact, his way, and has a story to tell.

BE Modern Man 100 Features showcasing 100 diverse men of color (African American, Afro Latino, African, West Indian, Indian, Indian-Asian, etc.) who have done or are doing exceptional work within their communities, within their respective industries and/or globally.

Our Perspective:  we’re broadening the spectrum in which men of color are represented  and providing a platform for their honest and positive first-hand stories & essays.

BE Modern Man Spotlights: we’re shining the light on the  BE Modern Man behind the companies, movements and industries that impact our lives and shape the world.
