"We've accomplished a great deal and hats off to the men of the organization and great work," said Roy Copeland, the president of the 100 Black Men of Valdosta.  "Victoria will just add to the lure of the local chapter of 100 black men of america and we're appreciative she's here."

The 100 black men seeks to energize young people and guide them in a positive direction.
