On the Move: The National Coalition of 100 Black Women Queen City Chapter chooses new president

Charlotte’s local chapter of ‘100 Black Women’ has selected a new president. The National Coalition of 100 Black Women-Queen City Metropolitan Chapter (NCBW-QCMC) has chosen Candice Johnson, a member since 2014, as the organization’s new president effective immediately.

Johnson has held previous leadership roles in NCBW-QCMC at the local and national levels, including health chair and first vice president of programs.

A native of Buffalo, New York, Johnson moved to Charlotte in 1998 to pursue a career in banking.

The National Coalition of 100 Black Women is a non-profit organization that advocates for Black women and girls in education, health, and economic empowerment. 

Johnson said she’s looking forward to creating more visibility and a “bigger footprint” for the organization. She plans to expand the work into specific communities like Derita and select neighborhoods on Charlotte’s southside.

“The thing that drew me to this organization was that it’s grassroots. So we really are in the thick of doing the work,” said Johnson. “I wanted to be a part of making an impact.”
