The Alliance Noire Citoyenne (ANC) was created in 2005.

The brigade anti-négrophobie" or "collectif anti-négrophobie" (anti- negrophobia brigade or anti- negrophobia collective) is an offshoot of the ANC movement that became known after they organised the boycott of the Guerlain store of the Champs Elysées and Galeries Lafayette.

On the 10th of May 2011, members of the ANC were expelled from the Jardin du Luxembourg during the commemoration of the abolition of slavery in Paris for wearing T-shirts "Brigade Anti- negrophobia " .

The Alliance Noire Citoyenne also demanded the supension of Brett Bailey’s exhibition Exhibit B in 2014, on the grounds of violation of human dignity.
