Tenth Annual Legacy Awards Luncheon Postponement 

A notice from the Rankin/ Mon Valley/ Pittsburgh Section of NCNW, Inc. Legacy Luncheon Committee:

The safety and security of our members and guests is our highest priority. Although currently there are no reported cases of the coronavirus in Allegheny County, in light of Governor Wolf’s recommendation to cancel or postpone events with 250 or more participants, we have decided to reschedule the Tenth Annual Legacy Awards Luncheon which was to be held March 21st at the Doubletree Hotel in Monroeville.

We recommend you keep your ticket in a secure location. All tickets will be honored when our event is rescheduled. The date has yet to be determined. As we gain more information we will reach out to you with the new date.



Welcome to the Rankin/Mon Valley/Pittsburgh Section of the National Council of Negro Women’s website. Our Section was formed in 2009 and chartered in 2010, inspired by the legendary American Civil Rights and Women’s Rights advocate, Dr. Dorothy I Height, who grew up in the Rankin area and was the National President of NCNW for forty years. She was widely respected for her influential leadership and unwavering commitment. Dr. Height was inspired by the founder of NCNW, Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune, who was an American educator, stateswoman, philanthropist, humanitarian and civil right activist. (You can read more about these beautiful, exciting women by clicking on our “About Us” button, then clicking on their names.)

As our Section strives to lead, empower and advocate for women of African descent, their families and communities, we urge you to get involved. Our health emphasis at this time is maintaining a healthy heart.

Please visit our website often and offer your support and suggestions. Let us work together to achieve equality, justice and freedom.

Thank you.
