THE NATIONAL BLACK PROSECUTORS ASSOCIATION

The National Black Prosecutors Association is the only professional membership organization dedicated to the advancement of Blacks as prosecutors. Founded in 1983, the Association’s membership is comprised of both chief and line prosecutors nationwide. In addition to prosecutors, the association’s membership includes law students, former prosecutors, and law enforcement personnel.

The NBPA is emerging as the international association of Black law enforcement professionals with a reputation for providing education and leadership in the legal profession through its intensive training sessions and multi-disciplined networking.

The National Black Prosecutors Foundation (NBPA Foundation) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

The NBPA Foundation provides scholarships for African American law students who meet academic criteria, along with a demonstrated desire to serve the community.

The NBPA Foundation also funds a fellowship for African American law school interns at prosecutors’ offices across the country. In recognizing the financial hardships that prevent some students from securing unpaid internships, the NBPA Fellowship allows students to explore a career in prosecution.

Congratulations to NBPA members who won big during #Elections2016!

Read the article (including a quote by NBPA President Melba V. Pearson)

A  New York Times article dated July 7, 2015, reveals recent data indicating that 95% of elected prosecutors are white. The study focused on state level prosecutors, and did not discuss the federal system. The NBPA is steadfast in our mission to retain and advance African Americans in the field of prosecution. We acknowledge the successes of our elected African American prosecutors who inspire us daily, as we groom more prosecutors to follow their lead.

It is with a heavy heart with which I inform the membership that NBPA Past President Richard Mangum has passed away after a lengthy illness. He served as our organization’s President from 1994 – 1997. A career prosecutor in New York, Mr. Mangum was an Assistant District Attorney in the Queens County District Attorney’s Office from 1982 until 1985. He later served in the Office of the Special Prosecutor for Criminal Justice, and retired as an Executive Assistant District Attorney in the Bronx District Attorney’s Office. Please join us in extending our condolences to his wife Karol, also a retired fellow prosecutor and member of our NBPA family, and the rest of his loving family. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to:

HAC/The Richard H. Mangum Early Learning Center
880 River Avenue
Bronx, N.Y. 10452

Rest in peace — you have fought the good fight.
