A dear sister of mine recently asked me the question. . . "Do you think the N.A.A.C.P. is obsolete?" What do you think? "For more than ninety three years, the NAACP has been built on the individual and collective courage of thousands of people. People of all races, nationalities and religious denominations, who were united on one premise --that all men and women are created equal." http://www.naacp.org/past_future/naacptimeline.shtml There are branches of the NAACP in cities across the nation. They have published a magazine that goes back to 1910. "The Crisis" magazine was found in almost every Black home 30 years ago. It was in my home and I can remember my parents and neighbors always talking about it. (I grew up in an all-Black community). How many homes have them now? http://www.thecrisismagazine.com/ crisismagazine thecrisismagazine.com The quote of W.E.B. DuBois is particularly eloquent and visionary. How many people knew that he was the founder and first editor of this magazine? Or did you know that this magazine even existed? With so much rich history behind the NAACP, and with such prominent leaders driving it at the helm and in the communities, how effective do you think the organization is today and do you think it's helping people of color, particularly African Americans?
