2014 brought the 100 Black Men of Philadelphia yet more success and more effective alliances to support the young children of our area. It marked the strengthening of our Minority Entrepreneurship Apprenticeship Program, and the growth of a Collegiate 100 Chapter at Cheyney University. In 2015, we will keep building upon the momentum and work yet harder to better enable the children and community that we serve!

Come see what we're about!


As we move forward in Philadelphia, we will focus on the critical issue of education from a variety of perspectives. The National African-American History Challenge organized and conducted by the 100 Black Men of America is offering young students the opportunity to enjoy being smart. The Chess Mentoring program helps young Philadelphians increase their conscious control over impulsive behaviors. Grooming and health workshops assure that young men know why and how to maintain themselves as well as help other family members.

As 2016 unfolds, we look forward to more challenges and more opportunities. Distrust and animosity between citizens and officials entrusted with their protection have escalated to levels not seen since the 60s. Our economy continues to rebound, but too many able and qualified workers with families are still unemployed or underpaid, health care and educational disparities persist, even among those who have access, and far too frequently the lack of quality schools offer our children no real alternatives to becoming a bankable commodity in correctional systems.

Even as change happens around us, the 100 Black Men of Philadelphia, Inc. has taken steps to ensure that we will remain pro-active and relevant. With the help of one of the top consulting firms in the world, we have been engaged in a strategic planning that will provide us with a roadmap toward a better shared future. Gone are the days when passion and purpose were enough to attract resources and mobilize people to work on issues important to our community. Today, strategy, execution, transparency, and proof of effectiveness are just as important as passion, if not more so.

Dr. Carter G. Woodson, once said, “If you can control a man’s thinking, you don’t have to worry about his actions. If you can determine what a man thinks, you do not have worry about what he will do. If you can make a man believe that he is inferior, you don’t have to compel him to seek an inferior status, he will do so without being told. ”

As we move forward in liberating and strengthening the thoughts and habits of our children, we welcome you to browse our pages, come to our meetings, and share in our efforts to improve the lives and futures of the youth of Philadelphia.
