Mrs. Black NC USA


                                              Chanda Branch
                                Mrs. Black North Carolina USA 2017

Reigning from the capitol city of Raleigh, the seat of North Carolina government, Chanda Branch is Mrs. Black North Carolina USA 2017! Chanda Branch is an alumnus of Tennessee State University, with a B.S. in Speech Communications & Theatre including Teaching Certification. Leadership and civic engagement were instilled in her as core values at a young age in her hometown of St. Petersburg, Florida and she remains committed to those concepts as she helps to build the community in Raleigh, North Carolina. 
As a professional classroom educator of English, Dance and Drama, Chanda is an award winning standout. She has produced plays and variety shows for students despite constraints on time, money, and resources. Her experience confirms her belief that young men and women blossom when they have an opportunity to express themselves creatively, and being involved in a stage production teaches skills that reach far beyond what students will see on a test.
Mrs. Branch was appointed to the City of Raleigh Arts Commission in 2014 and reappointed in 2016. The aim of the commission runs parallel to her own as “the Commission is dedicated to the ongoing goal of connecting people to the arts and building a vital and ever-expanding creative community for Capital City residents and visitors.” She serves the city and the commission as the Chairperson of the grants committee, which oversees the distribution of municipal funding for arts partners. 
One of Chanda’s passions is engaging youth and minorities in the arts for civic change and social justice. Often, the ability to pay for lessons and everything else associated with training is a barrier for those who have great talent, but do not have vast resources. This excludes certain groups from participating fully in the arts on many levels. Her long term goal is to open a studio where children can discover and train their talents in fine arts, whether they can pay tuition fees or not.
She is proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., and Sigma Alpha Iota Music Fraternity for Women. She is working toward a lifetime membership with the NAACP and works with a number of local community organizations aimed at improving the quality of life for all citizens of Raleigh and North Carolina. She is happily married to Mr. Corey Branch; who is not only the love of her life, he is also the Councilmember from District C to the Raleigh City Council.
