An Official Auxiliary of the North Carolina Democratic Party
History of Company
African American Caucus of the North Carolina Democratic Party was organized in Raleigh, North Carolina at 12:15 p.m. on February 8, 2003, at the North Carolina Democratic State Convention. 39 African American Democratic State Executive Committee members had specific concerns that were not addressed by the State SEC. They met together to discuss how to proceed to have these concerns addressed. After this meeting was called to order, a motion was unanimously passed by all present to form an African American Caucus.
The State Executive Committee adopted a resolution to recognize the creation of this caucus, as an official organization, and the African American Caucus of the North Carolina Democratic Party was chartered by the SEC at that State meeting as an official auxiliary of the North Carolina Democratic Party.
The members present at that first meeting were:
Harold Lee Hairston
Linda D. Coleman
Vicki Alston Sonia M. Barnes
Carl Dean Gina Pettis-Dean
Millie Hoffler Foushee
Catherine Hall Larry Hall
Carolyn Smith Ed Smith
