Living Portraits of African American Women

The Denver Section of the National Council of Negro Women and the Blair-Caldwell African-American Research Library honor the outstanding contributions of African-American Women. During the Living Portraits events we also take the time to put the spotlight on the talents of our youth by showcasing their many talents during the program.

I want to be remembered as someone who used herself and anything she could touch to work for justice and freedom…


I want to be remembered as one who tried.
