STATEMENT FROM ONE HUNDRED BLACK MEN OF NEW YORK ON THE PASSING OF THE HONORABLE DAVID N. DINKINS ONE OF ORGANIZATION’S FOUNDERS
One Hundred Black Men of New York (OHBM) extends its deepest condolences to the family and friends of the Honorable David N. Dinkins. In 1963, he and several distinguished men founded the OHBM to bring together leaders to advocate for improvement in the Black community. We were blessed to have Mayor Dinkins as an active member, including serving as co-chair of the One Hundred Black Men Annual Gala.
While Mayor Dinkins made history as the first Black Mayor and faced several challenges in his role, he never strayed from his commitment to OHBM. He remained an incredible source of wisdom and camaraderie for all members of the organization.
We will honor Mayor Dinkins’s legacy at our annual Founders’ Day and Pinning Ceremony event on the evening of Thursday, December 10th.
