About Us

Our Mission, History, & Leadership


The National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. (NCBW), Columbia (SC) Chapter is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization whose mission is to advocate on behalf of black women and girls to promote leadership development and gender equity in the areas of health, education, and economic empowerment.

The National Coalition of 100 Black Women Inc., Columbia (SC) Chapter’s Interest Group was convened by Mary Miller McClellan on February 25, 2012, on the campus of Benedict College. From its inception, Mary, a former member of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc., Long Island (NY) Chapter, believed that the dynamic group of women whom she had invited to join her would embrace the vision and mission of this national organization. Subsequent to completing extensive training in chapter development, the chapter was chartered by National President Michelle McNeil Emery and the NCBW, Inc. affiliates from the New York City corporate office at the Columbia (SC) Marriott on Saturday, March 29, 2014.

The Vision of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. is to see black women and girls live in a world where socio-economic inequity does not exist.
