100 Black Men of London
The 100 Black Men of London is a charity dedicated to the education, development and uplifting of our youth and the wider community.
We are a chapter of the 100 Black Men International Inc, an organisation first created in New York in 1963 by a group of concerned African American men determined to bring about positive change in their local community.
Our membership comprises men of African or Caribbean heritage. Our volunteer base consists of men and women of diverse backgrounds, professions, skills and interests.
The 100 Black Men of London was founded and exists to provide what we see as a crucial service to the people what we see as a crucial service to the people of London. Governments and institutions all have their part to play in the advancement and development of communities, but we strongly believe that it is when individuals within the community themselves come together to fight for a common cause that true progress is mad and achieved.
