The Black Hundred (also known as the black-hundredists) was a Russian nationalist movement in Imperial Russia in the early 20th century. The group strongly supported the monarchy and the Russian Orthodox Church. Associated were paramilitary groups, sometimes known as "Yellow Shirts".

Some parts of it have been accused of persecutions of minorities and involvement in pogroms. The associated short-lived newspaper Znamya was the first to publish the Protocols of the Elders of Zion and there were also other associations between members and the Protocols of the Elders of Zion and anti-Semitism more generally. As regarding pogroms, there may be problematic aspects of the politically correct descriptions.
