History of 100 Black Men of the Virginia Peninsula, Inc.
William A. Hines Jr.
In October 1990, a discussion between William A. Hines, Jr., Dr. Anthony Sibley and Ross M. Hines resulted in an agreement to establish a local chapter of the 100 Black Men of America, Inc. From that point the three men began to recruit potential members from various professions. In November 1990, a meeting was held at the home of William and Carolyn Hines and the idea was adopted with record speed. A few weeks after that historic meeting, the first set of By-Laws was drafted and later the Articles of Incorporation were filed.
The Virginia Peninsula Chapter of the 100 Black Men of America, Inc. remains committed to making a difference in the lives of young people, especially young African Americans.
