Sometime during the early 1900's, a group of African American funeral directors bonded themselves together for a common professional purpose. In 1924, under the guiding advisory of the late J.C. Scarborough, Sr., a group of forward thinking funeral servicemen met in Durham, NC.
Officially becoming organized in June of 1927, the group was known as the Colored Funeral Directors and Morticians Association of North Carolina, Inc. The Women's Auxiliary was organized in 1927, as well. The foundation that this organization was built on years ago holds solid today.
