Brigadier General Ural Glanville congratulates Marvin Dickerson, the National President of the 100 Black Men of America, and Inc. on their 60th National Convention. General Glanville said “We are here (U.S. Army) because the Army shares the same mission as the 100 Black Men of America. Preparing our youth to be the next generation of leaders. Personally, I enjoy mentoring young people and what I see here is an organization that cares about the youth and values education.”

Recognizing the vital importance of mentorship in the development of the nation’s next generation of leaders, the U.S. Army continues its partnership with 100 Black Men of America. The partnership includes the Army’s participation at the 31st annual 100 Black Men of America National Conference held recently in New Orleans.  

Marlin N. Gusman, the Sheriff of Orleans Parish joined in the U.S. Army activities by performing several pushups at the 100 Black Men of America Community Empowerment Day. The activities took place at the Alice M. Harte Charter School at 5300 Berkley Dr., New Orleans, LA. The community engagement theme was “Growing Healthy, Wealthy and Wise.” The goal of the event was to build a project which will last beyond the conference and continue to benefit the community. Activities included building a community garden, having a local “bazaar” with STEM activity and health screenings.
