100 Black Men of Greater Washington, DC

The 100 Black Men of Greater Washington, DC is devoted to improving the quality of life for African-Americans--particularly young males--in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area.

The 100 Black Men of Greater Washington, DC, Inc. (100 BMOGWDC) was established in 1995 by a group of concerned and motivated associates, all of who recognized the importance of bringing "The 100" goals of community involvement and leadership by example to the DC area. Recognizing that significant mentoring efforts were already in place in the area, the chapter's initial strategy was to form alliances and lend support to existing programs that dovetailed with the missions of the 100 Black Men.

Over the years, our programs have evolved and expanded into all of the "Four for the Future" areas. In fact, the 100 BMOGW was recognized by our National organization as a flourishing chapter in 2004. This distinction is awarded to chapters who have real programming in Mentoring, Education, Health & Wellness, and Economic Development.

The 100 Black Men of Greater Washington DC, Inc., with more than 90 members, is made up of men from throughout the metropolitan area who are employed by local and national corporations, other private sector organizations, local or federal governments, school systems, and other organizations. Chapter members include the mayor of Washington, D.C.; a member of the D.C. City Council; school principals; corporate officials; business owners; and others prominent in the Greater Washington Community.

The 100BMOGW takes to heart our slogan, "What They See Is What They Will Be®.Our chapter is comprised solely of volunteers making our motto "Real Men Giving Real Time"® a way of life. We have a dedicated and exemplary membership and are always searching for more responsible, caring men to join our ranks.

The chapter has had four presidents since its inception:

James Waller 1995-1997
William Highsmith, Jr. 1998 -1999
Barry Hudson
Marvin Dickerson
