The Brooklyn Club


Welcome Message From Our President

 Thank you for visiting The Brooklyn Club of The National Association of Negro Business and Professional Women's Clubs, Incorporated's website.  You have entered a portal that has a stellar history, community service, and women dedicated to supporting each other.  Our history dates back to 1944, when our illustrious National President, Ruth Handy, called 21 prominent African American women of Brooklyn to organize the Brooklyn Club. They included some of the first African American Public School Teachers, Doctors, Journalists, Funeral Directors, Social Workers, Music Teachers, other entrepreneurs. They received the national charter in November 1945 in Chicago at the National Convention.

The Brooklyn Club is steadfast in its volunteering efforts in the new National Adult mandated theme:   “L.E.T.S”:  “Leadership, Entrepreneurship, and Technology and, Service”.

I, Dr. Kim Best encourage you to become a member of our Brooklyn Club and be a catalyst that uplifts the quality of life in our various Brooklyn Communities.

Let’s work together and strengthen families, provide opportunities for our youth, and make a paramount impact as, “SISTERS ON THE MOVE FOR COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT & POSITIVE CHANGE”
