Former New York City Mayor David Dinkins was a founding member of the organization 100 Black Men of New York (OHBM) along with Robert Magnum, J. Bruce Llewellyn, Cyril deGrasse Tyson, and baseball great Jackie Robinson.

OHBM released the following statement regarding the yesterday's passing of Dinkins, New York City's 106th mayor, at the age of 93.

"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 four 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."
