The National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in America is a mass-based organization for the sole purpose of obtaining reparations for African descendants in the United States.
N’COBRA’s founding meeting, September 26, 1987, was convened for the purpose of broadening the base of support for the long-standing reparations movement. Organizational founders of N'COBRA include the
National Conference of Black Lawyers, the New Afrikan Peoples Organization, and the Republic of New Afrika. N’COBRA has individual members and organizational affiliates. It has chapters throughout the U. S. and in Ghana and London. It is directed nationally by a board of directors. Its work is organized through nine national commissions: Economic Development, Human Resources, Legal Strategies, Legislation, Information and Media, Membership and Organizational Development, International Affairs, Youth & Education.
We believe black people can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
The Mission of the National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in America (NCOBRA) is
to win full Reparations for Black African Descendants residing in the United States and
its territories for the genocidal war against Africans that created the TransAtlantic Slave
“Trade” Chattel Slavery, Jim Crow and Chattel Slavery’s continuing vestiges (the
Maafa). To that end, NCOBRA shall organize and mobilize all strata of these Black
communities, into an effective mass-based reparations movement. NCOBRA shall also
serve as a coordinating body for the reparations effort in the United States. Further,
through its leadership role in the reparations movement within the United States and its
territories, NCOBRA recognizes reparations is a just demand for all African peoples and
shall join with others in building the international reparations movement.
