Black women's political organization to charter chapter in Howard County

November 23, 1995

The National Political Congress of Black Women will charter a Howard County chapter at 4 p.m. Sunday in the Banneker Room of the George Howard Building, 3430 Court House Drive in Ellicott City.

"We try to educate people about the issues and affect public policy and encourage women to get involved and to run for office and to register people to vote," said Diane Tolson of Columbia, treasurer for the chapter.

Ethel B. Hill of Columbia will be president.

"Our mission is to identify and elect African-American women, regardless of their political affiliation, to register to vote and engage in political activity," Ms. Hill said.

The National Political Congress of Black Women was founded in 1984 by C. DeLores Tucker, the national chairwoman, and former U.S. Rep. Shirley Chisholm.

Dr. Tucker will be the speaker Sunday.
