NAACP at 100 yrs Old

Posted by Unknown Wednesday, July 15, 2009

The NAACP is celebrating its 100 yr anniversary. Questions abound about its relevancy in modern times. Many wonder if its best days are in the past. I would argue that there is a valid role for the NAACP that should not be overlooked. First, it is the repository of a glorious history of struggle and advancement that included multitudes of people. Second, it was the vehicle through which the African American community learned to win legal battles and fully use the Constitution in the liberation struggle on its behalf. Third, it was and is an effective training ground for leadership. Fourth, its membership dues are relatively inexpensive. Fifth, its all we have.

If you are not yet a member you should join, get active, and involve all of our children in this outstanding organization. It's effectiveness and relevance is truly determined by the people who participate.
