The 100 Black Men of America, Inc. was founded in New York City in 1963 by a group of like-minded business, political and community leaders who advocated for improvement in conditions adversely effecting African-American youth. They envisioned an organization that would capitalize on their collective power to address inequities and to empower African-Americans to become agents of change in their local communities. As a symbol of their solidarity, the group embraced the name, One Hundred Black Men. The National 100 Black Men organization has since grown to over 110 chapters worldwide and is a leader in providing scholarships, educational support, economic empowerment, mentoring, health and wellness initiatives and an overall support for the African American community.
