What role did the NAACP in ending segregation?

The NAACP organized lawsuits to end "separate but equal." The landmark case of Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka in 1954 was funded and organized by the NAACP after the Topeka chapter of the NAACP decided that that particular case would be most likely to reach a favorable conclusion in the US Supreme Court.

Does the Advent speaker corp still exist?

if you do a simple search on Google i think you will find the answer is no

The name still exists, but with no personnel ties to the original company.

Advent was originally started by the late Henry Kloss. This company was eventually bought by Beatrice which became Esmark. In the 1980's the Esmark audio companies were spun off as International Jensen Inc. IJI originally consisted of Jensen, Advent, Phase Linear, and the automotive OEM speaker business, and component businesses. In the 1990's IJI went public. In the mid 1990's IJI was bought by recoton, and the OEM, and component companies were spun off as IJI. The Advent line and its design continued under Recoton ownership, but eventually became solely sourced overseas. When recoton went out of business the brand names were picked up but no personnel went to the new owners.

So in short, the name still exists, but the personnel/design change stopped with Recoton ownership.

PS: AS an addendum to the above or for anyone who wishes to know, we in the audio business and those few who got to know him (or at least had dinner with he, Saul Marantz and Jon Dahlquist one night) knew him as a modest man of surprisingly modest means. He placed purity in sound reproduction over profit. His Advent loudspeakers were truly incredible speakers. We sold them against ANY other speakers even near their price range ($112.00 ea. retail in '75). When stacking them up against more expensive speakers we literally stacked 'em - two sets of Advents, woofer to woofer to challenge some of the most expensive speakers of the time. Nothing could approach the Advents in their price range, and it took going to DQ 10's or Infinity 2000A's before one could beat the stacked Advents and then you were going way out of the Advent price range (DQ 10's in those days were $400 a side).

This article has inspired me to obtain a pair of them and give 'em the old A / B comparison against today's speakers. Perhaps I'll look up this article at that time and report on how they do...

What is the NAACP and when was it established?

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), established on June 1, 1910, is the oldest organization in the United States dedicated to seeking compulsory integration for those of African descent -- into white males' established economic, political and residential communities. The NAACP's creation was inspired by Mary White Ovington (Caucasian), Oswald Garrison Villard (Caucasian), and William English Walling (Caucasian). Prior to the creation of the NAACP, the white and black races in America were following the stated goal of Booker T. Washington, which was to have blacks live separate from whites and thereby achieve self-reliance as a distinct people. Note: Whites and blacks in America were living legally separate under Plessy vs. Ferguson (1896). The NAACP was staunching opposed to having blacks be a self-reliant people. In the NAACP's formative years, no white philanthropist would be offering any financial help to the organization, believing it was far too radical - and wrong - in its renouncing self-reliance for those of African descent in America.

W.E.B. Dubois was the only black on the Executive Committee of the NAACP when it was formed. Mary White Ovington invited him to join after the organization was already established. He was given the title of Communication Director -- his only responsibility being to run the Crisis Magazine.

It stands for The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. On Feb. 12, 1909, Miss Ovington (she was a lifelong spinster), along with Oswald Garrison Villard and William English Walling (both White males and Christians) sent out a "Call" letter to everyone they believed would be supportive of an organization that would provide Blacks a new direction: integration. It was established (incorporated) on June 1, 1910. The organization's stated mission is "to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate racial hatred and racial discrimination." However, the NAACP has rarely ever offered its voice or any kind of assistance to any other race or ethnic group other than those of African descent .
