Since 1998, AASF held SUCCESS SUMMIT Conferences to showcase its Grantees and their research that promotes the positive image of African Americans. AASF supporters attended from all over the country to hear this positive information. This program is now closed but successfully disseminated research that highlighted African American success strategies rather than the usual focus on deficits, dysfunctions, and failings.
