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.

The African American Caucus of the Durham County Democratic Party (AAC-DCDP) is a county caucus of the AAC-NCDP.

The purpose and objectives of the AAC-DCDP shall be to seek the full representation of African Americans at all levels and in all activities of the Democratic Party. This shall include, but not be limited to, the following objectives:

Encourage and support the election of African American and Democratic Party candidates

Organize the African American community to be a viable constituency of the Democratic Party

Develop and implement effective strategies to maximize the power of the African American vote

Communicate public policy concerns and issues relative to African Americans and provide a platform for public discourse

Coordinate and develop alliances with local and state organizations, churches, businesses, academic and health institutions, and other entities, whose vision is to improve, strengthen, encourage, and collaborate with the African American Community

Work with the Durham County Democratic Party to facilitate the organization of African American precincts
