BRIEF HISTORY

The courageous women of the Mississippi State Federation of Colored Women's Clubs, Inc., and Youth Affiliates (MSFCWC) planted their taproots in deep and fertile soil when they organized the historical Federation of Colored Women's Clubs in 1903. Following the organization of the National Association of Colored Women's Clubs (NACWC) in 1896, many states, including Mississippi, joined forces as a means to combat the opposition of the political and economic discrimination that was rising and manifesting against Blacks in our society.
