This past Saturday June 21st, The Park 112 in Harlem was host to a wondrous event bringing together young professionals from all over NYC to connect with one another professionally and socially.
A beautiful crowd was brought together by host Darnell Edmonds and his company Edmonds Production Group. The event sponsored by Hendrick’s Gin, included attendees from the New York Urban League Young Professionals chapter, the New York’s Young and Powerful and the One Hundred Black Men. It was a great environment to be a part of on a Saturday and one to look forward to again. Look out for future events as Mr. Refined will definitely be a part of the next one!
One Hundred Black Men, Inc. began in New York City in 1963 as an organization of like minded business, political and community leaders who met to advocate for improvement in conditions in their communities. These men envisioned an organization that would capitalize on the collective power of community to address issues of inequities and to empower African Americans to become agents of change in their communities. These visionaries were business and industry leaders such as Robert Mangum, Cyril Tyson, J. Bruce Llewellyn, Livingston Wingate, Andrew Hatcher and David Dinkins. They forever changed the face of black social, economic and political empowerment.
