Established in 1970, the National Black Child Development Institute (NBCDI) is a national nonprofit organization with a mission “to improve and advance the quality of life for Black children and families through education and advocacy.” For 50 years, NBCDI has been at the forefront of engaging diverse stakeholders to address critical and timely issues that directly impact Black children and families.
Although 2020 marks our 50th year, the public health risk presented by the COVID-19 pandemic prompted us to shift to a virtual 50th Anniversary Conference to October 2021 next year. We look forward to gathering in-person again in October 2022. Please check our conference website page regularly for updates.
As we prepare to celebrate our 50th anniversary, NBCDI embraces with enthusiasm the growing calls for change in our country and the organizational initiatives that will propel our next 50 years of dynamic work on behalf of Black children and families. Regardless of the format that our celebration takes, please mark your calendar and make plans to join us. Thank you for your continued partnership during this exciting period at NBCDI and in our nation.
