About the 100
Executive Board & Chairs
In today’s socio/economic environment, it is even more important for us to be positive role models for the kids of our communities.There is not a better time for us to demonstrate Leadership in all phases of our programs of Education, Mentoring, Economic Development, and Health and Wellness. The disparities between the kids in our communities and the general public continue to grow.To aid in addressing those disparities, we must engage all stakeholders to develop ways to identify, address, and create sustainable solutions in all of our communities.Internally, we must grow our organization, through active recruitment of dedicated volunteers, and reclaim members.
The Sacramento chapter of 100 Black Men was established in April 1988. Ernest J. Jackson, founding president, convened a group of 18 men to discuss the problems and expectations of African-Americans in the Sacramento community and the need for involvement of concerned black men. The chapter grew rapidly and a membership of 42 charter members was introduced to the public on December 24, 1988.
