100 Black Men

Jake and I were invited by Willie Iles Jr., who manages community and governemnt affiars for the BSA National, to the 100 Black Men Annual Meeting in NYC yesterday for their awards lunch.  It was a massively inspiring event–filled with hundreds of men committed to improving thier communties through mentoring.

We had a chance to meet Eagle Scout Earl Graves who at 74 reminded the packed ballroom that he has been involved in Scouting for 65 years.  With Bob Mazzuca, the Chief Scout Executive, Earl presented Thomas W. Dortch Jr. with the Silver Buffalo Award.
