History

In the fall of 2008, several African American community leaders met to discuss how to address problems facing African American males in South Bend, including the graduation rate and overall condition of our community. Led by Arnold Sallie and Barrett Berry, the group expanded to include Linwood Bailey, Howard Buchanon, Phil Byrd, and Alfred Guillaume.

In the spring of 2009, a meeting of interested African American men was held. With over 30 men from a variety of occupations in attendance, a discussion ensued about the possibility of forming a chapter of 100 Black Men in the Greater South Bend area. In June 2009, an application was developed and submitted to the national organization. The 100 Black Men of America Board of Directors granted a charter to the 100 Black Men of Greater South Bend, Inc. in July 2009.
