Helping educators strengthen the cultural competence of any health and nutrition education curriculum.

The National Black Child Development Institute (NBCDI) is excited to share our two newest publications of the "State of the Black Child" Report Card series: Texas and Washington State. With the support of local advocates, community leaders, parents, caregivers, educators, and elected officials, NBCDI has designed these report cards to serve as powerful advocacy tools in highlighting and addressing the racial disparities in outcomes for Black children and families. The report cards provide advocates with high-priority policy recommendations to improve education, health and family support systems for Black children and families statewide.

For 48 years, NBCDI’s Annual Conference has brought together thousands of early childhood educators, K-12 teachers, administrators, social workers, health professionals, elected officials, researchers, and representatives from colleges and universities, community and faith-based organizations, business and government entities who share our mission and are working to improve and advance the quality of life for Black children and families through education and advocacy.

As we come together for this celebration of the 47th Annual Conference of the National Black Child Development Institute to honor the legacy of all who fought before us and the hard work you are doing today, we know that you stand ready to fan the flames of “The Movement: Reignited.” It is with the urgency of a burning fire that our children need us to do whatever it takes, for as long as it takes to help them actualize the brilliance they are endowed with. The torch has been passed. And our time to fight for our children, for our families, and for our communities, is now.
