Founding Date December 5, 1935 National Council Of Negro Women
December 5, 1935
The founding of the National Council Of Negro Women 84 years years ago by the majestic educator and black woman leader Mary McLeod Bethune was a giant step forward for not only the advancement of black women but also the entirety of our black nation. The organization whose offices still exists on Rhode Island Avenue in Washington DC lead the fight for equality civilly and socially in this nation. We must remember the impact that this in other organizations had in our move towards freedom.
