The 100 Black Men of America, Inc. considers economic empowerment necessary for creating just societies around the world.
100 Black Men of America, Inc. promotes and fosters the ability of its mentees and members to be self-determined in creating dreams, pursuing them, and ultimately perpetuating those dreams and aspirations by establishing the mechanisms to sustain generational wealth. Through comprehensive curricula and training opportunities, our organization works diligently to promote economic self-sufficiency and break the cycle of generational debt. It is the goal of the 100 to leave a legacy of wealth-building, which leads to debt-free living for the youth and communities we serve. Our economic empowerment programs and initiatives foster financial literacy, career development, financial planning, investment management, and fiscal responsibility at an early age. Exposing our youth and collegiate students to the skills, strategies, and mindset of entrepreneurship also provide beneficial, transferable knowledge that will help to establish a firm foundation from which they can later build upon for business development and wealth creation.
