2nd SUNDAY SUMMER BLUES BRUNCH SERIES
The 100 Men Hall’s mission is to promote and preserve the hall, a centuries’ old nexus of social justice and artistic expression for a population historically denied access to both, in the Jim Crow South. Today, the hall fosters civic participation in a variety of causes to promote the greater common good, supporting creative expression and activist art for women and men who have struggled to find a mainstream connection due to their social or artistic convictions, or minority status. Those familiar with the Hall consider it a beloved community treasure; those learning about it for the first time are instantly captivated by its storied past.
The Hall’s past tells a more nuanced story of Mississippi than the one most people hear about this state. It is a story of a self-directed and self-reliant African American community, and it is the story of sheer artistry and creativity starring James Brown and Etta James as well as a long roster of brilliant musicians and performers who were part of the Chitlin Circuit.
In 2022, the Hall celebrated its centennial and 129th anniversary as a 501c3 federal nonprofit, Hundred Members Debating Benevolent Association. As a nonprofit, we rely on sponsorships to keep the music playing and program grants to get the good word out there about this unique and compelling landmark.
