Who do you think best embodies Black excellence?

I'd have to say right now in this time, it's Donald Glover. It's very inspiring for me to see a person who cares to such a detail about the stories he presents. No matter the media, he doesn't seem to do anything just to do it, but everything is done with such intention that you have to pay attention. With his projects, I also appreciate that he takes on race and cultural topics in ways that are very unique. To me it's important to see people of color creating such high-quality content no matter the media or genre.
