What We Do…

The AFRICAN AMERICAN SUCCESS FOUNDATION provides services that result in the collection and dissemination of information about African American achievements. These services help AASF build upon the study and science of African American success. These services are:  

Information Clearinghouse

  • to identify, collect and disseminate information that highlights the accomplishments and achievements of African Americans to focus attention on their many successes, while countering negative stereotypes, myths and misinformation that often characterize these individuals.

Scientific Research

  • to study the attitudes and behaviors that characterize successful African Americans to identify key predictors and encourage the perpetuation of that success
  • to build the science of African American success and contribute to the body of knowledge about African Americans.

Charitable Support

  • to reinforce the education of students and professionals who study African American success and related issues by providing research fellowships and grants.
