An African American became mayor of the largest city in the United States in 1989 when David N. Dinkins won the general election after a stunning primary defeat of New York City's incumbent mayor.

The overall concept of the 100 began in New York in 1963 when a group of concerned African American men began to meet to explore ways of improving conditions in their community. The group eventually adopted the name, "100 Black Men, Inc." as a sign of solidarity.

While working at New York City's Harlem Hospital during the late 1980s, Pernessa Seele saw an overwhelming number of African Americans suffering from AIDS.Therefore....

Tom Bradley's attempt to become the country's first elected black governor failed in 1982, but seven years later L. Douglas Wilder of Virginia reached that milestone.

She started the Harlem Week of Prayer for the Healing of AIDS in 1989. It was the beginning of the Balm in Gilead, an organization that encourages churches to fight against AIDS
