One Hundred Black Men, Inc. began in New York City as an organization of like minded business, political and community leaders convened to capitalize on the collective power of community to address issues of concern, inequities and to empower African Americans to be agents for change in their own communities.
"OHBM 2014 Lifetime Achievement Honoree" Hon. Basil Paterson
It is with a tremendous amount of sadness that we have lost one of Founders of One Hundred Black Men, who was a New York political icon, helping to shape and open doors for so many African Americans across New York and beyond. His counsel and advice will be missed by us all, and we all are indebted to his lifetime example and commitment to public service. Our prayers and thoughts are with his family.
