The overall concept of the "100" began in New York City in 1963 when a group of concerned African-American men began to meet to explore ways they could improve conditions in their community with young males as their primary focus and the community in general. The group adopted the name, the "100 Black Men," as a sign of solidarity. Subsequently, this idea was duplicated in other cities. By 1984, there were nine chapters of the "100." As of 2003, the "100" has 95 chapters in the U.S., Virgin Islands, England and the Bahamas. New chapters in other cities are under consideration.
The Louisville Chapter is actively working to create corporate, non-profit and community partnerships to help facilitate the economic, educational and social welfare of African Americans in the community in which we live, worship and work.
The Louisville Chapter of 100 Black Men of America, Inc. strictly adheres to the policies established by the national organization of the 100 Black Men of America, Inc. Our fundamental purpose is to develop leaders for the new millennium.
Consistent with the national chapter we work within the Kentuckiana Community to achieve the following guidelines through partnerships that we can effectively build through education, corporate sponsorship, mentoring and a variety of agencies and/or organization affiliations.
Four key areas of concern of the 100:
Education: We firmly believe that in order for a student to compete in this world that all students must have the same educational tools and advantages. The 100 across the United States are working with lawmakers to insure that no inadequacies continue to exist.
Mentoring: Chapters of the 100 across the United States have identified students across the United States that are in “Mentoring the 100 Way: all programs must be SMART:
Today’s investment…..Reaping tomorrow’s returns!
The Louisville Chapter of 100 Black Men is actively working to create corporate partnerships to support Project MALE (Men Advancing Leadership Effectively). The proceeds raised annually are used to fund and support Project MALE, the signature program of the chapter. Project Male is a mentoring program designed to help male students, identified by the 100 Black Men of Louisville’s criteria, increase their opportunities for success in the community and the world.
