#HERStoryMattters: The National Coalition of 100 Black Women – Metropolitan St. Louis Chapter

To advocate on behalf of Black women and girls to promote gender equality and leadership development in the areas of health, education, and economic empowerment.

NCBW advocates on behalf of Black women and girls through national and local action and strategic alliances that promote our national and international agenda on leadership development and gender equity in health, education, and economic development.

The National Coalition of 100 Black Women – Metropolitan St. Louis Chapter is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1984. With the acute demand to address the concerns of African-American women in our community, the Metropolitan Saint Louis Chapter of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women was organized by Dr. Fredda Witherspoon in 1984. The Metropolitan Saint Louis Chapter of NCBW has kept the vision of Dr. Witherspoon alive by providing education and resource to our community. We have awarded over $45,000 in college scholarships to deserving women, we continue to support and volunteer at the Crisis Nursery and provide mentoring to young girls in our Changed by Design program.


We exist to…
• Foster the principles of equal rights and opportunities;
• Promote awareness of Black Culture;
• Develop the potential of the membership for effective leadership and participation in civic affairs;
• Take action on specific issues of national and international importance; and
• Cooperate with other persons and organizations to achieve mutual goals.
