The 100 Black Men of America was formed in 1963 by a group of prominent leaders, including Major League Baseball's Hall of Fame legend Jackie Robinson, to improve the quality of life and enhance the educational opportunities of African Americans in a unified, collaborative, pragmatic effort. There are over 103 chapters with over 10,000 combined members in several countries.
Founding President Larry Mosley, Randall Bacon and several committed men formed the Las Vegas Chapter in 1999 to make a difference in the Las Vegas community. The 100 Black Men of Las Vegas, Inc. became a chartered member of the 100 Black Men of America in the year 2000.
The organization achieved a 501(c)(3) designation as a non-profit organization and donations can be used as a tax deduction. Since its inception, the Las Vegas Chapter has taken great strides in membership growth to over 100 men in 2004. These men believe in brotherhood as the staple of the organization. While the organization is predominately black men, membership is open to everyone who meets certain criteria. Women are involved in our organization, carrying out various roles and responsibilities.
The programs for the 100 BMOLV are: Mentoring, Education, Health and Wellness and Economic Development.
