The NAACP Houston Branch Centennial
In 1918, exactly 100 years ago, enlightened African Americans in Houston felt the need to address a series of civil rights issues confronting African Americans both nationally and locally. Realizing that there had been the creation of a new national civil rights organization, the local group decided to form a local branch and become a part of the national effort to eradicate discrimination. And so began the birth of the Houston Branch of the NAACP. On the founding day in 1918, no one would have believed that 100 years later the war against discrimination would still be ongoing.
