In 1997 the idea set forth, that was birthed in 1963 in New York City, took root in the hearts of a group of leaders in Mobile, Alabama. With a vision of better days for the community — educators, judges, doctors, lawyers, politicians, administrators, engineers, businessmen, entrepreneurs, religious leaders, and other professionals came together to form “Alabama’s First Chapter” of the 100 Black Men of America.

Building up the vision established in New York to make lasting differences in the lives of African-American youth. As the men had in 1963 and 1997, the 100 of today has a passion to channel our collective resources to improve the lives of young people and the various communities of Mobile, Alabama and its surrounding area.
