Its Our Anniversary

On February 12th, 110 years ago, the NAACP was founded after a deadly race riot rocketed the city of Springfield. IL. The NAACP is the nation’s foremost, largest, and most widely recognized civil rights organization. Its more than half-million members and supporters throughout the United States and the world are the premier advocates for civil rights in their communities, leading grassroots campaigns for equal opportunity and conducting voter mobilization.
As we celebrate Black Excellence this month. I hope you will take on the challenge to join us in the fight to end hatred and racial discrimination – EQUALITY FOR ALL!!!
