As the leading African American women's organization, the National Council of Negro Women hosts events throughout the year that celebrate, empower and enrich the lives of women of African descent.
Our three key events each focus on a different area of our community and work. They are:
Black Family Reunion Celebration: Black Family Reunion Celebration was founded in response to the negative image of the "vanishing Black family." It is now the largest, most significant family event in the country.
Uncommon Height: Uncommon Height is NCNW's premier event which awards a person or persons who exemplify the spirit and tradition of Dr. Dorothy Height through a lifetime of service to others. An invitation-only, black-tie event, it is held in Washington, DC around Dr. Height's birthday every March.
National Convention: The National Convention is a biennial event where NCNW leaders, members and affiliate members conduct business and help chart the direction of the organization for the next two years.
Other regular events include the Affiliates Assembly (biennial, alternating with the National Convention) and Bethune Recognition Programs (throughout the year). Local events are also held throughout the year, across the nation.
