The National Bar Association was established in 1925 as the "Negro Bar Association" after Gertrude Rush, George H. Woodson, S. Joe Brown, James B. Morris, and Charles P. Howard, Sr. were denied membership in the American Bar Association. It represents the interests of African-American attorneys in the United States. The association has several affiliate chapters located throughout the United States. Some affiliate chapters of the association are The Barristers' Association of Philadelphia, the California Association of Black Lawyers, the Washington Bar Association, the Virgil Hawkins Florida Chapter National Bar Association [], the Garden State Bar Association and the Metropolitan Black Bar Association. - Source: Wikipedia
