NORTH CHARLESTON (WCSC) – Five members of the 100 Black Men of Charleston chapter greeted nearly all the students of Mary Ford Elementary in North Charleston with firm handshakes, high fives and hugs Monday morning.
“We’re just here for the kids,” Tory Fields said. “We want to encourage the children to get a good year started off.”
The men came prepared with pencils, advice a resonating messages. “We tell them how nice they look. Telling young boys to tuck their shirts in and pull up their pants, put their belts on,” Fields said.
The goal of 100 Black Men of Charleston is to inspire and improve quality of life for future generations.
