For more than five decades, 100 Black Men chapters across the nation have touched the lives of more than 100,000 young people. The 100 Black Men of America Inc., focuses its efforts and energies on improving the lives of African-American and other minority youth in our community, by pursuing the “Four for the Future” programs established at the national level: (1) Mentoring, (2) Health & Wellness, (3) Education, and (4) Economic Empowerment.
