Our Washington DC Legacy

The 100 Black Men of Greater Washington, DC, was formed in 1995 as an outgrowth of the Million Man March. “The 100” of Greater Washington, DC is a 501(c )(3) organization focusing on African-American youth, and aims to make a difference in the lives of young people through its signature programs of mentoring, education, economic empowerment, health & wellness, and leadership development.

Today, with more than a decade of experience in helping young men and women in the Greater Washington, DC area, the organization has grown to more than 100 members and has positively affected the lives of thousands of young people and their families.

Worldwide charity programs

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.
