N'COBRA is the National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in America, a mass-based coalition organized in order to obtain reparations for African descendants in the United States. It was founded on September 26, 1987 by members of the National Conference of Black Lawyers, the New Afrikan Peoples Organization, and the Republic of New Afrika. Its chapters are throughout the U.S., in Ghana and in London.
In September 2003, N’COBRA formed a 501(c)(3) corporation, N’COBRA Legal Defense, Research and Education Fund. The mission of this 501(c)(3) is to develop and implement projects to educate and seek reparations for Africans and People of African descendant. As a 501(c)(3) it will not engage in lobbying which is one of the primary focuses of the parent organization, N’COBRA.

The N'COBRA International Affairs Commission (NIAC) works closely with Africans, African descendants and supporters of reparations for Africans and African descendants throughout the world.
It helped run the World Conference Against Racism (WCAR) and the Non-Governmental Organization Forum and government conference held in Durban, South Africa August 28-September 8, 2001. Its members were also active in the African and African Descendants Caucus that was formed during the WCAR preparatory process.
NIAC understands the connection among the status of Africans and African descendants in the United States, throughout the Diaspora, Africans on the Continent and Africa. N'COBRA and NIAC acknowledge that the success of the movement for reparations for Africans anywhere advances the movement for reparations for Africans and African descendants everywhere.
