ABOUT OUR FOUNDER

The Gentlemen’s Network is an organisation for the black male community, providing recognition and support for males through the transition from boy to man to gentleman.

Growing up as a young black male in London certainly has its challenges - particularly during the period of becoming an adolescent. In 2015, I was inspired by my godson to develop a community of inspirational black boys and men, who he could look up to as role models and peer mentors to get advice and learn from.

Currently, there is a rise in positive black male celebrities and influencers coming up, however there are also local aspirational people within our communities that we can develop a direct engagement with.


Through The Gentlemen’s Network I hope to bring together the best of both worlds to inspire the next generation. By growing our network and connecting with individuals and organisations, we hope to achieve our two key objectives:


Provide recognition by raising the profile of positive black males in society whilst redefining the stereotypes being forced on them.


Provide support fundamentally through the transition from boy to man, to gentleman.

We are keen to collaborate with those with similar objectives, please visit the Work with TGN page.
