National Black Feminist Organization
Founded in May 1973, the National Black Feminist Organization (NBFO) aimed to address the sexism and racism that Black women experience. The first NBFO meeting took place in New York City and involved well-known figures and activists, including Michele Wallace, Margaret Sloan, Flo Kennedy, Faith Ringgold, and Doris Wright. By February 1974, there were more than 2,000 members of NBFO and ten chapters across the country.
