The International Black Women’s Congress (IBWC), founded in 1983, is an international, non-profit networking organization. We seek to build bridges uniting women of African descent. IBWC is concerned with the growing poverty and negative stereotypes of Black women in the 21st century. It is obvious that Black women must define themselves from their own perspectives. The International Black Women’s Congress believes that we must build an African centered view of womanhood–a model that speaks to the multifaceted roles that Black women continue to play. We hold yearly national conferences on critical issues impacting women of African ancestry and develop local programs with members in thirty-five states.

A serene oceanfront escape, with a free shuttle to the Boardwalk
With a tranquil North Beach location and the most direct ocean view rooms in Virginia Beach, our 100% non-smoking hotel is the ideal spot for a relaxing oceanfront vacation. Enjoy refreshing sea breezes from your private balcony or patio overlooking our semi-private beach. Cool off in our outdoor and indoor pools, and wind down in our hot tub. Start your day with a beach yoga session.
Resort-like perks like free WiFi, in-room refrigerators, our Surf Club Ocean Grille, room service, movie nights, and a fitness center make going out entirely optional. When the mood strikes, the excitement of the Boardwalk is as close as our free shuttle, and we offer bike rentals and easy access to area attractions.
