About the Sponsor

“We are men who make a difference. We have the talent and the ability to solve problems that may overwhelm others. The history of our people is marked by the relentless commitment and determination of each generation of African Americans that have prevailed in the face of open hostility toward our people. Our central mission is to improve the quality of life in the African American community. Our work is a continuation of work that came before us, and a forerunner of work that we must ensure will be carried on. The 100 Black Men’s programs are directed at young African American males. These programs offer structured mentoring, tutoring, cultural enrichment and college scholarships. We take on these and other responsibilities because we recognize the crisis overtaking the black community.”

The mission of 100 Black Men of Sacramento succinctly explains why 100 Black Men of Sacramento have chosen to support a scholarship in education at Sacramento State for worthy students who seek to become future educators in the African American community.
