When the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP)was founded in 1909, it's mission was simple: to fight racial and social injustice.
Founding members included Mary White Ovington, W.E.B. Du Bois, Ida B. Wells and almost sixty other men and women--both African-American and white--who were concerned with racial violence and injustice in the United States.
Within its first ten years of being established, the NAACP had: established a monthly news magazine The Crisis, protested the film Birth of a Nation, organized a silent protest march in opposition to racism, and of course, spearheaded the Harlem Renaissance.
And within its first one hundred years, the organization's consistent appeals to local, state and national government has led to social and political reform in the United States.
Readers, what do you think is the greatest contribution that the NAACP has made to United States' society?
