Meet Our First Ladies


The An Evening of Excellence Gala exists to celebrate the excellence of black women in our churches and communities and show young black girls that the media’s portrayal of black women does not define who they can become. Each year we solicit nominations for women who exemplify the characteristics of an Exquisite Black Woman.  From these nominations, we select (9) ladies who embody faith, compassion and the love of Christ yet walk in the strength, elegance, and sophistication of An Exquisite Black Woman.

Exquisite Black Women would like to send a special thank you to all who joined us at the 2020 An Evening of Excellence Gala​ It was indeed our pleasure to host this inaugural event honoring the work of these beautiful women. This Black-Tie Affair featured live entertainment from Linkin Bridge, a powerful message from Dr. Roszlyn Aikens & special presentations from Representative Reginald Meeks. First Ladies, we appreciate all that you do for your community and churches.
