The African American Caucus of the North Carolina Democratic Party (AAC-NCDP) was organized in Raleigh, North Carolina, on February 8, 2003, during the North Carolina Democratic Party State Convention.
Thirty-nine (39) African American Democratic State Executive Committee (SEC) members had specific concerns that were not addressed by the State SEC. A deliberative assembly was formed and called to order to address these issues. The SEC adopted a resolution recognizing the creation of a caucus to promote political participation and education within the African American community, encourage African Americans to seek public office, represent the issues and concerns of its membership and work toward strengthening the Democratic party. With a unanimous vote, an auxiliary, the African American Caucus of the North Carolina Democratic Party, was chartered by the SEC.
