Founded in 1976, the National Alliance of Black Feminists (NABF) sought full equality for African-American women in the United States. The group held a three day conference, "A Meeting of the Minds: A National Conference for, by and about Black Women" in Chicago in 1977. The NABF put forth a Black Women's Bill of Rights that included the non-racist and non-sexist portrayal of African-American women in advertising, television, film, radio, newspapers, magazines, books, and all other mass media as a fundamental right. The NABF also sought to improve the education, social status, economic circumstances, and professional prospects of African-American women.
