100 Black Men of America, Inc.
30 Years Strong
The overall concept and Work of The 100 began in 1963 in New York City; however, in 1986 the organization officially incorporated as 100 Black Men of America, Inc. Accordingly, this year’s annual report recognizes a significant milestone in the history of 100 Black Men of America, Inc. – our 30th Anniversary since incorporation. Our influence, however, has spanned more than half a century. Over this duration we have developed a strong and consistent track record of impactful outcomes through our core service delivery of mentoring, which includes programmatic initiatives in education, health and wellness, economic empowerment, and leadership development.
We are proud to be recognized as the nation’s top African American led mentoring organization. In this report, we pay homage to our past, celebrate our present and take an expectant glimpse into our future. “What They See Is What They’ll Be®”is more than a motto. It is a source of motivation for all members in our 100 Black Men chapter network.
Additionally, our motto serves as a constant reminder that we must consistently commit ourselves to personifying the type of people our children will look up to and emulate. We fully embrace the immense responsibility we have to our mentees and our communities. We hope that in the pages that follow you will see and be inspired by the richness of our history, encouraged by our powerful outcomes and intrigued by the boundless possibilities of what is yet to come.
