One Hundred Black Men of New York, a historic nonprofit dedicated to empowering Black communities, held a Jazz concert at Lincoln Centers 42nd gala fundraiser in New York City on March 31.

Eric Mower, the CEO of Mower and one of 10 honorees, collaborated with the non-profit to debut the organizations new brand campaign, “Open Every Door”.

It strived to ensure that doors of opportunity in education, business and health care will be open for all who make the choice to enter them.

The campaign —supported by large out-of-home media donations secured by Mower — is seen all throughout Time Square, taking over billboards and bus shelters.
