NAACP FACTS

Founded in 1909, NAACP was one of the earliest and most influential civil rights organization:

  •  Focused on legal strategies designed to confront critical civil rights issues of the day
  •  Called for federal anti-lynching laws and coordinated a series of challenges to state-sponsored  segregation in public schools
  • Landmark 1954 Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education, which declared the doctrine of “separate but equal” to be unconstitutional.
  • Co-organized the 1963 March on Washington
  • Lobbied for legislation that resulted in the 1964 Civil Rights Act and 1965 Voting Act
