The National Association of Colored Women’s Clubs, Inc., is the oldest African American women’s organization in America. The association was established in Washington D.C. in July, 1896. Hundreds of African American women’s clubs came together from across the U.S. with a main purpose to address some immediate and long-range issues that affected the African American communities. The City of Pensacola’s Federation of Colored Women’s Clubs, Inc., was founded in 1929 by Mrs. Ella Jordan.
