Please be reminded that we are sensitive to flooding your inbox with information and updates, but we want to do our part to keep you informed on a timely basis. 

The 100 Black Men of America’s overriding Guiding Principle is that we are here to be of service to the family. We will do what the family asks of us in the manner that they ask us. We will proceed respectfully in everything that we do. With that being said we will host another webinar Wednesday evening at 4:00pm Eastern for all members attending to remind everyone of the details and to provide any additional information.  Let us continue to pray for the Dortch family!
