About Our Chapter

Founded: 1932.

Charter Members

Alberta Banks, Fannie Vick Berryman, Matte Jones, Ivy Lambert, Eva Langston, and Lillian Jones.

Key Civic Projects

Although in the beginning, our aims were primarily social, we have since contributed to a number of charitable and educational causes including the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Crossroads Theatre, Urban League, Shirley Tolentino Endowment, The Wynona House, Project Hygiene and the Girl Friends Fund with an endowment from GF Juanita Humphrey.

Important Fact

Fondest Girl Friend memories and history hark back to the first conclave held in the home of GF Connie Cotterell in New York City. Over the years, perhaps our Chapter's greatest contribution to girlfriendom has been the sponsorship of the Albany, Buffalo, Detroit and Trenton chapters.
