About Us

Mission

The NCBW mission is the development of socially conscious female leaders who are committed to furthering equity and empowerment for women of color in the society-at-large, improving the environment of their neighborhoods, rebuilding their communities and enhancing the quality of public and private resources for the growth and development of disadvantaged youths. NCBW is dedicated to community service, the creation of wealth for social change, the enhancement of career opportunities for women of color through networking and strategically designed programs and the empowerment of women of color to meet their diverse needs.

Organization History

In the winter of 1970 in New York City, 24 Black women, led by visionary Edna Beach, began meeting in their homes to assess the problems and opportunities left behind in the wake of the turbulent 1960s. As a result of their meetings, they formed the Coalition of 100 Black Women. For the rest of the 1970s, they slowly but persistently worked to master root causes of issues that affected their families, their communities and themselves. They boldly began to reach out to other Black women in common cause, and eventually, mobilized their emerging stature as a visible force of influence promoting gender and racial equity.

Chapter History

The Greater New Orleans Chapter of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women was chartered in 1988 based on the founding principles of its parent organization. Its members work to address common issues within our communities, our families and our personal lives while promoting gender and racial equity.

The National Coalition of 100 Black Women has thousands of members with chapters in 25 states and the District of Columbia with the purpose of meeting the needs of its members and empowering black women.

The women of the coalition are physicians, dentists, lawyers, judges, corporate executives and an array of other positions from across the public and private sectors. It takes this wealth of resource talent to achieve the organization’s goals as well as to effectively engage other organizations, corporations and influential individuals.

Annual Projects

NCBW implements programs that:

  • Provide an effective network among black women.
