Our Local Legacy

Metropolitan Area through programs focusing on Mentoring, Education, Economic Empowerment, Health & Wellness, and Leadership Development.  We’ve had the privilege of working with youth in the greatest need to help them establish, and achieve their goals.  Since our founding in 1995 we have been able to serve over 14,000 children and families within our local community.

Our national legacy

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, youth mentoring, and health and wellness initiatives to the African American community.
