The foundation for all of the chapter’s programs and services is rooted in the African American tradition of giving and volunteerism. Members share a deep sense of communal responsibility, and for the past 50 plus years have been committed to actively initiating and supporting educational, cultural, and civic programs, that positively impact the lives of people from Brooklyn’s African American/Caribbean communities.
To mark the milestone of its 50th Anniversary, and to continue its legacy of showcasing the talent and accomplishments of the African American arts and artists, the Brooklyn Chapter began co-sponsoring with Brooklyn Arts Council a film festival for women filmmakers. On May 18, 2002, the chosen films explored the impact of the positive linkages that women of African descent have to their families, friends, communities and the broader world. This tradition has continued annually since then and takes place at the Spike Lee Screening Room at the Brooklyn Campus of Long Island University in May of each year.”
