Our History

The Triangle East, NC Chapter was founded in December 1997 to address issues facing the local minority community from Chapel Hill to the eastern coast of North Carolina. Charlotte, Fayetteville, Rocky Mount, Greenville and Wilmington are the other chapters operating in NC.

The Triangle East Chapter of 100 Black Men of America, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose primary mission is to educate and support programming that advances the positive interests of youth throughout Wake & Durham County North Carolina. The members of the Triangle East Chapter are devoted to improving the quality of life for African-Americans-particular young males through programs focusing on health and wellness, economic empowerment, mentoring and education. We seek to serve as a beacon of leadership by utilizing our diverse talents to create an environment where our children are motivated to achieve and to empower our young people to become self-sufficient shareholders in the economic and social fabric of the communities we serve. We do this by coordinating our efforts with other Triangle community organizations and by focusing attention on systemic issues that impede African Americans from achieving a higher quality of life.
