The National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. is a national organization that began in New York City in 1970 in an effort to continue the successful implementation of socio-economic and political strategies that began in the mid-1960s. The NCBW consists of thousands of progressive women of African descent who represent 60 chapters in 25 states and the District of Columbia and whose commitment to gender equity and socioeconomic advancement drives meaningful change to benefit women of color.
The Columbia Chapter, chartered in 2014, has identified critical service issues in the Midlands in the areas of health, education, mentoring and economic empowerment, for which the chapter has developed programs to address and meet the needs of women, girls and families of African-American descent.
