Tulsa Chapter History

 

For nearly 60 years, 100 Black Men of America Inc. have improved the quality of life within black communities and enhanced the educational and economic opportunities for African Americans across the United States. Continuing this legacy, the Tulsa chapter has led locally through mentorship, education, health and wellness, and economic empowerment since 1994. We infuse leadership in every area of our programming. 

Through empowering African American youth, have had an unprecedented impact in the Tulsa community. We have partnered with the local community to inspire over 2,000 youth, impact over seven local schools, and have awarded more than 50 college scholarships totaling $75,000 since 2009. For centuries, African American men have been pillars of the black community. When African American leaders are actively present, black families thrive, black communities flourish and black children are affirmed and secure. Part of our mission is to champion the continued leadership of men in the lives of underserved black youth to inspire them to be catalysts in Tulsa, the United States and around the world.

100 Black Men of America


The concept of The 100 began in New York City in 1963. A group of concerned African American men began meeting to explore ways to improve conditions in their community. These visionaries included businessmen and industry leaders such as David Dinkins, Robert Mangum, Dr. William Hayling, Nathaniel Goldston III, Livingston Wingate Andrew Hatcher, and Jackie Robinson. Today the vision has been shared by more than 10,000 members reaching over 125,000 underserved, underrepresented minority youth annually. Our motto, “What They See Is What They’ll Be,” very succinctly expresses how our programmatic services rendered to disadvantaged, disenfranchised and low-income youth and families positively change their life trajectory.
