North Carolina Black Leadership Caucus
The NC Black Leadership Caucus was organized in October 1976 after key Black leaders in North Carolina recognized the need to create a statewide organization that could consolidate the civil rights and voting rights gains of the past into a platform to support Black political and economic empowerment. The NCBLC seeks full equality and equity for all Black North Carolinians.
The structure of the Caucus comes from the membership. Structured locally in each of the state's 13 Congressional Districts and 100 counties, the Caucus membership includes community residents statewide, progressive organizational leaders, public officials, community activists, clergy, and working women and men who are concerned about the survival and future empowerment of Black and Low-wealth people.
These citizens have collectively joined together to meet and share information and to develop strategies to promote empowerment in all sectors of life.
