FRANKFORT/

FRANKLIN COUNTY BRANCH OF THE NAACP

SUPPORTING OUR COMMUNITIES

 

OUR VISION

The Frankfort/Franklin county branch of the NAACP was started in 1958.  Our focus was and is to support all minorities with civil rights and aid our National Association in the fight for equality for all people.

 

Founded in 1909, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) was one of the earliest and most influential civil rights organization in the United States. During its early years, the NAACP focused on legal strategies designed to confront the critical civil rights issues of the day. They called for federal anti-lynching laws and coordinated a series of challenges to state-sponsored segregation in public schools, an effort that led to the landmark 1954 Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education, which declared the doctrine of “separate but equal” to be unconstitutional. Though other civil rights groups emerged in the 1950s and 1960s, the NAACP retained a prominent role within the movement, co-organizing the 1963 March on Washington, and successfully lobbying for legislation that resulted in the 1964 Civil Rights Act and 1965 Voting Act.
