Earlier this summer, the National Black Nurses Association (NBNA) held its 50th annual conference in Chicago, along with a free health fair for the local community. Founded in 1971, the non-profit organization was formed as a collective to represent and advocate for Black nurses, fighting unequal pay and systemic racist practices from employers, patients, and the American Nurses Association. Today, the organization continues to empower Black nurses, with over 100,000 members nationwide, and help them cope with the pressures, racism, and passion of working in medicine.
