Here’s a quick list of BMe Leader Award alums from Philadelphia:

Social entrepreneur and Echoing Green fellow Alex Peay. Village of Arts and Humanities program manager and social justice gadfly Mike O’Bryan.  Urban Philly Professional Network founder Sulaiman Rahman.

Philadelphia has a history of nominating some of its best and brightest Black male leaders for the award (50 altogether, to be exact). The award seeks to recognize Black men for the work they’re doing in their communities with a $10,000 grant and the opportunity to network with a national community of Black male leaders in Washington, D.C.

The annual award is back, and nominations (and applications) are being accepted now through Feb. 21.

“BMe is redefining social entrepreneurship,” Philadelphia BMe Community Manager Jeff Jones told the Tribune. “BMe Leaders are social entrepreneurs who build assets and opportunities in places where other innovators fail to do so.”

The organization is seeking “remarkable, authentic, committed black men whose works and stories speak for themselves” and narratives around this year’s theme: “Genius.”
