The 100 Black Men of Bay Area celebrated 30 years of ser­vice on Dec. 8. 2018, at the Hy­att Regency in San Francisco. The organization began when Carl Washington approached Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity brother, Robert Brackins II regarding starting an organi­zation entitled “The Society of 100 Black Men.” Washing­ton’s and Brackin’s intent was to form a Black male leader­ship organization that would take care of the African-Amer­ican community through edu­cation and work/employment and training.

Since 1992, the 100 Black Men have given out over $1.4 million in scholarships, and have mentored thousands of students into their “Collegiate 100,” a program run through UC Berkeley which supports students through college. The organization mentors students at Frick Middle, Castlemont High, Fremont High, Oakland Technical High and SR. Mar­tin College Preparatory School in San Francisco.
