Clemson University's "Men of Color" National Summit

"Men of Color" National Summit is an annual gathering of Advocate groups and young males held in Greenville, South Carolina, hosted by Clemson University. Clemson is well known for its advocacy, having founded the "Call Mister Program" and the "Call Me Doctor Program" in the early 2000s. Those programs are now located on several campuses throughout the nation.

Since 2017, The "Men of Color" Summit has been an event that brings this mission to an annual step by bringing a collection of participants (leaders, students, and advisors) to Greenville and introducing them to various speakers, presentations, and inspirational keynote speeches of nationally known Black and Hispanic leaders such as Ervin "Magic" Johnson, Freeman Hrabowski, Michael Eric Dyson, Roland Martin, and Jose Hernadez. 

The summit aims to provide a platform for dialogue and collaboration, bringing together students, educators, professionals, and community leaders to share experiences, insights, and strategies for success. The specific themes and topics covered in the summit may vary from year to year, but the overarching goal is to empower men of color and promote positive change in their lives and communities.

Alpha Greenville Foundation started sponsoring a group of High School Males in 2020.

In 2023, AGF sponsored Six (6) high school students (five pictured) to the Men of Color Summit
