ABOUT 100 BMOL
100 Black Men of Louisville, Inc. is a nonprofit with the mission of improving the quality of life within the communities of metro Louisville and enhancing educational and economic opportunities for all African Americans. Founded in 1990, the Louisville chapter is one of 118 chapters nationwide. The overall concept of the “100” began in New York in 1963 when a group of African American visionaries began to meet to explore ways in which they could improve conditions in their community for young males. The group eventually adopted the name, the “100 Black Men” as a sign of solidarity. Visit 100bmol.org for more information.
