    An early gathering of the NAACP (2 of 16)

    In 1909, in part to counter instances of open disregard for African-American life such as had occurred in Memphis and was still occurring over forty year’s later, a coalition of leading writers and intellectuals gathered in New York City to establish the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.



    The Nation’s Oswald Villard—grandson of the prominent abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison and this magazine’s editor for over a decade in the early years of the twentieth century—was integral to the founding of the new organization, and “his fearless and outspoken determination…held the group together in the early and difficult years,” Flint Kellogg wrote in 1959. By the time Villard left the organization, it was, in the words of NAACP director W.E.B. Du Bois, “out of debt, aggressive, and full of faith.”


    :terrific:

    thank you, i learn something new everyday..btw Glen Beck had a black history segment on his lousy show some time back so that cancel out his red neckish behavior?

    Is it a magazine you can buy in the store, or is it only online?

    I've never heard of it until now.

    Are you saying it is racist, or it is not?

    Your point isn't clear to me ... but then again ... it rarely is ... :lol: ... nawww ... i'm jes' kidd'n ... :love:

    Love You!

    :heart:

    The original title of the post was The Nation magazine, Commemorates black history Month

    but I noticed it was taken down,
    when I logged back on

    so I assumed that it was wrong to post the title
