100 Black Men of London

Formed in April 2001, this is an organisation of Black male volunteers from a wide variety of backgrounds who have pooled their collective resources to uplift, strengthen, and improve the quality of life for their community, particularly amongst the young. These aims are addressed in their four key areas of activity: mentoring, education, economic empowerment, and health and well-being.
 
At the very heart of the 100BMOL is a mentoring programme which runs in conjunction with the school calendar. This programme, which seeks to release the talents of youngsters, has encouraged and motivated hundreds of young people to develop educationally, emotionally, spiritually and physically. Individuals interested in volunteering some of their time to mentor a young person should contact the organisation.
 
The 100BMOL also hold regular screenings of films and documentaries as part of their Education Through Film programme. ETF events largely focus on hitherto neglected aspects of Black culture, history, and social development from around the world. They often include speakers from the full spectrum of achievement and advancement.

The group also organises an annual "Black History Challenge" which is open to schools in the London area. The BHC has played a pivotal role in raising awareness and appreciation of cultural diversity within participating schools. Other activities include an annual Quality Time event for males and the children in their lives as part of a weekend celebrating the Fathers Day, and a series of Black History Walks which highlight the hidden presence of Africans in the UK since Roman times.
