History of 100 Black Men

The idea of the 100 Black Men was born in New York City in 1963 when a body of successful men from the fields of business, industry, public affairs, government and the professions decided to pool their skills, experiences and resources to improve the quality of life for Blacks and other minorities. Among those early founders were David Dinkins, Livingston Wingate and Andrew Hatcher.

In the 1970s, the concept of developing individual, independent chapters in other cities took hold and in 1976, the 100 Black Men of New Jersey was formed by Dr. William Hayling and others.

After New Jersey came Los Angles, Indianapolis, St. Louis, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, the San Francisco / Oakland Bay Area, Nassau/Suffolk and Sacramento. In 1986 these 9 successful chapters resolved to create "100 Black Men of America, Inc. as a national confederation with Dr. Hayling as the founding President.
