We are an informal non-profit men's club that continuously work to have a positive effect in The Villages, FL and its surrounding communities. With our membership being predominantly African American, we take a keen interest in matters that effect communities of color. We accept into our "Brother Hood" men from ANY ETHNIC GROUP who share our values. While we are a Villager Life-Style Club, one does NOT have to be a villager resident to join us!. Our members come from the tri-county area encompassing "The Villages Community".
WE Celebrate African American Achievements YEAR ROUND because the TRUTH has been suppressed since 1619...
