A Message From Our President.....

​Hello to Everyone,

It is my privilege to greet you as the new President of the NCBW 100 Black Women Decatur/DeKalb Chapter. Having worked with this Chapter for the past 9 years in various positions, I am acutely aware of the responsibilities and the expectations of the new Executive Committee and the members of the NCBW Decatur/DeKalb Chapter. Your vote of confidence is very much appreciated.
We will continue to build upon our national initiatives and meaningful progress for women and girls of color, promoting leadership development and gender equity in the areas of health, education and economic empowerment in the spirit of advocacy "From Protest to Policy: Making Advocacy Count!". We are equally proud of our pledge in support of 'Breast Cancer' and our sustained commitment to our 'Legacy Program', the development of young girls in 9th through 12th grade, and providing scholarships to deserving high school senior girls.

Thank you for the honor of representing you as President. I will continue to give 110% and more to achieve the mission of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women and the Decatur/DeKalb Chapter to develop socially conscious female leaders committed to furthering advancement in the development and empowerment of black women and girls throughout the community. I look forward to the challenges and exciting opportunities that lie ahead for the NCBW Decatur/DeKalb Chapter.

If you have interest in joining our chapter, please contact our Vice President of Membership and Chapter Development, Donna Payne, at or 678-499-8846.

The History of the NC100BW Decatur-DeKalb Chapter Inc.

The National Coalition of 100 Black Women Decatur-DeKalb Chapter, Inc. was founded in 1989 with 100 chartering members. The Chartering President was Louise Turner.

In 1996 the Decatur-DeKalb Chapter began its signature program, The Legacy Program, a leadership development program for African-American girls in grades 9-12 in DeKalb County. The Legacy Program received a grant in 2008 from the Tony Cox Foundation to produce Public Service Announcements educating DeKalb County's youth about preventing the spread of HIV/AIDS. This began the award winning, "Do You Know?" HIV awareness and prevention campaign.

In 2003, then president Pamela Stephenson created our signature event, the Pink & Black Ball to recognize breast cancer survivors and advocates for their work in the community. It was also used to raise funding for The Legacy Program.

In 2011, the Decatur-DeKalb Chapter received two national recognition awards during the 15th Biennial National Coalition of 100 Black Women conference for its overall programs to the community and its health programs.

The chapter also holds political forums and financial education seminars each year to create an awareness of issues that will positively or negatively affect our daily lives in DeKalb County.
The National Coalition of 100 Black Women is a non-profit volunteer organization for American women. Its members address common issues in their communities, families and personal life, and promote gender and racial equity.
