NAACP DeKalb is proud to announce that we have 5 of our Youth to win medals at the National NAACP
Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics (ACT-SO) competition. This
competition was hosted virtually July 7 -11 and consisted of over 500 ACT-SO students from NAACP
branches across the country. ACT-SO Chair, Mrs. Freda Hammonds, attributes the success of the
program to the commitment of our talented students and the volunteer mentors who provided the
guidance to our students.
“To Control a people you must first control What they THINK about Themselves and HOW they Regard their HISTORY and CULTURE. And when your conqueror makes you ASHAMED of your culture and your history, he needs No prison walls and no chains to HOLD you.” John Henrik Clarke #365Black

COVID19 slowed us down but it did not stop us. NAACP DeKalb installed a plaque in front of the DeKalb County Courthouse in Remembrance of the lynching and racial terror against Black people in the county. A formal ceremony will be held later after a change in the shelter-in-place order for this pandemic. More details coming soon.
