On May 17, 1991, Lenny Springs, Ronald Fisher, and David C. Belton met in the First Union Atrium in Charlotte to discuss the possibility of forming a chapter of 100 Black Men in Charlotte. Lenny was already a member of the 100 Black Men in Atlanta. David and Ronald wanted to start a chapter in Charlotte and convinced Lenny that there was a sufficient pool of men in the area. Each men then submitted a prospective list of members.
Our members are dedicated to make strides in the success of today’s youth. Our members are not only mentors and volunteers, they’re businessmen, doctors, lawyers, engineers, teachers, etc. Our members are more importantly men of good character and ambition. These men are truly represent what the 100 Black Men of Greater Charlotte is all about and the example that we want all of our youth to see in our communities.
Our board includes great leaders in the Charlotte community who are role models in their own right. They work hard to make sure that the programs that we have stay aligned with the 100’s mission and vision to be a Brotherhood of leaders enriching the lives of African American Youth through Mentoring, Education, Economic Development , Health & Wellness and Leadership.
