100 Black Men of America


More than 1,500 members of the civic group 100 Black Men of America are in Fort Lauderdale this week for the organization’s 28th annual convention.

The mission of the 100 is to improve quality of life within the black community and to create more educational and economic opportunities for all African Americans. The group focuses on four areas: mentoring, education, health and wellness, and economic opportunity.
