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.
Atlanta, Georgia – October 11, 2023: The National Coalition of 100 Black Women Incorporated (NCBW) celebrated a momentous occasion during its biennial gathering in Philadelphia, PA. This five-day event, held at the Sheraton, Downtown Philadelphia from October 4th to October 8th, brought together NCBW members from across the Country.
The conference underscored NCBW’s unwavering commitment to shaping the future through substantive discussions and knowledge exchange at public meetings and plenary sessions. Key topics included the reshaping of corporate strategies in social engagement and community partnerships, fostering educational well-being in schools, prioritizing health equity, and addressing barriers to economic empowerment opportunities.
The pinnacle of the evening came with the installation of NCBW’s National Directorate, as Virginia W. Harris of Atlanta, GA, took the oath as the 11th National President.
