Black Men United is an organization founded by Dr. Boyce Watkins. Along with president, Andre Hatchett, the objective of our group is to protect and elevate the brand and mindset of black men all around the world.
The organization was founded on a set of core principles of pledges that all members must make:
Loving and respecting black women, uplifting and protecting the black community, a commitment to financial intelligence and maturity, knowledge over ignorance, leadership, fatherhood and challenging unjust laws.
