Founded in 1909, it's progressive and ambitious agenda has challenged white supremacy, helped to defeat legal segregation, and sparked some of the most significant equal rights legislation of the twentieth century. In this engrossing collection of editorials, petitions, reports and speeches, archivist Sondra Kathryn Wilson delineates fifty-seven years of the NAACP's program under the successive direction of James Weldon Johnson, Walter White, and Roy Wilkins. By gathering the public writings of these heroic figures, she has created a narrative that spans more than half a century of racial conflict and civil rights history."--Jacket." ;
