Orga­ni­za­tion Background

The Coali­tion of 100 Black Women was founded in 1971 by a group of ded­i­cated African Amer­i­can women in New York City. In 1981, the group cre­ated a national orga­ni­za­tion and renamed it the National Coali­tion of 100 Black Women (NCBW).

Today, NCBW con­sists of more than 7,000 mem­bers rep­re­sent­ing 63 chap­ters in 24 states and the Dis­trict of Colum­bia.

The Oak­land – Bay Area Chap­ter Char­tered in 1995 is one of sixty-three chap­ters within the National Coali­tion of 100 Black Women, Inc., network.
