100 Black Men of Greater Knoxville is pleased to announce their first ever Peace in the Community event happening October 23rd at Chilhowee Park. The event has been organized to promote peace in the city of Knoxville in light of the tragic and controversial events happening around the country.

The group hopes that the event will promote peace and fellowship. They also hope it will foster and maintain a strong bond between law enforcement and community. 100 Black Men of Greater Knoxville says the unique aspect of this event is that it touches on what is happening in the world as we speak. “Love and fellowship is what’s needed rather than fighting and division.” A special draw to this event will be the attendance of members of the UT football program.
