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.
Regular Members are responsible for joining at least one committee, attending monthly meetings, and supporting events such as the annual Madam CJ Walker Luncheon, Scholarship Reception, and Community Grill-Outs. Associate Members have less of a time commitment than Regular Members.
