About 100 Black Men
The origins of 100 Black Men is found in the dedication of a few distinguished men, who came together in New York in 1963 to empower African American and minority communities, invest in youth development, and dispel negative images of African American men.
Among these founders of the modern day 100 Black Men movement were the Honorable David Dinkins (former Mayor of New York), Andrew Hatcher (Associate Press Secretary to President John F. Kennedy), The Honorable Livingston Wingate (New York State Supreme Court Justice), and William Hayling, M.D. (Founding President).
The Prince George's County chapter of 100 Black Men was founded in 2012. We provided community empowerment programs based on our four guiding Mentoring pillars of Education, Health and Wellness, Economic Empowerment, and Leadership.
The 100 Black Men of Prince George’s County strives to provide caring and transformative leadership and mentoring guidance that encourages, engages and challenges African -American youth and young adults to exceed their personal expectations.
The 100 Black Men of Prince George’s County will be the leading provider of caring, inspirational and empowering mentoring services that provide a strong foundation of support for African -American youth and their families in Prince George’s County.
