National Association for the Advancement of Colored People
The NAACP is the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. The NAACP was started 12 February 1909 as an organization to promote the rights of minorities. The… NAACP consists of different departments that are concerned with various aspects of minority rights such as legal, education and employment. The NAACP was created by a group of white people inspired by W.E.B. De Bois and the Niagara Movement. W.E.B. De Bois was the first black person in the United States to earn a doctorate degree from Harvard. De Bois had a book, The Souls of Black Folk, published in 1903 and led an anti-segregation movement that was called the Niagara Movement. The Niagara Movement started because not one American hotel would allow the group of black men to register, so they stayed on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls.
The primary goal of the NAACP was and is to advance the rights of people of color. It intended to help people of all ethnicities gain the benefits of citizenship.
