During the late 1960s and early 1970s, the Civil Rights, Black Consciousness, and the Black Social Work movements converged in the struggle for Black liberation.
The National Association of Black Social Workers, Inc., comprised of people of African ancestry, is committed to enhancing the quality of life and empowering people of African ancestry through advocacy professional development or training, human services delivery, and research.
National Association of Black Social Workers, Inc. will work to create a world in which people of African ancestry will live free from racial domination, economic exploitation, and cultural oppression. In collaboration with national, international, and other appropriate groups, NABSW will continue to leverage its collective expertise to strategically develop the capacity of people of African ancestry to sustain and flourish. NABSW’s vision is guided by the Principles of the Nguzo Saba, which are Unity, Self-determination, Collective Work and Responsibility, Cooperative Economics, Purpose, Creativity, and Faith, and the Seven Cardinal Virtues of Ma’at, which are Right, Truth, Justice, Order, Reciprocity, Balance, and Harmony.
Our monthly meetings are held the 3rd Wednesday of every month at Howard University’s campus in the Social Work Faculty lounge on the 3rd floor.

We hope to see you there!
As Black social workers we commit ourselves, collectively, to the interests of our Black brethren. Our activities are guided by our Black consciousness, our determination to protect the security of the Black community, and to serve as advocates to relieve suffering of Black people by any means necessary.
