Celebrating Black Women

#1619NCBWChallenge

400 years after the first African captives arrived in English North American in the year 1619, the 1619 National Celebration of Black Women, Inc. launched a nationwide movement in recognition of Black women's extraordinary contributions in building America. 

This March 2nd, 2020, we invite the nation to honor and celebrate Black women during Women's History Month by taking part in our "IAM1619Challenge.

Founded in San Diego, California, April 2018, the 1619 National Celebration of BLACK WOMEN, Inc. arose out of a necessity to recognize women in American history who emerged from slavery, defied the odds and came out victorious; women whose name and face may not be known, but who gave tirelessly of her body, her life, her labor, her genius, and her offspring to help build the most powerful nation in the world.

100 years from now we envision an America where every Black woman and girl can proudly say "I AM 1619!"

GET READY FOR 1619NCBW 2020!
