Background:
One Hundred Black Men of America, Inc. was created in 1963 with the founding of its first chapter in New York in 1967.  The organization's hope was to make a difference in the lives of African-American youth and the idea quickly caught on with independent chapters forming across the nation. There are currently 80 chapters and 10,000 members with the mission remaining the same- to improve the quality of life for African American communities by improving the educational, economic and social status of African-Americans across the nation.
