That “Colored People” part puts some people off in this day and age, but the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is historic. When it was founded in 1909, “colored” was the language of the day. I take the language as a nod to its longevity.
Campaigns against lynching and against segregation were its earliest battles. Whether it keeps its historic name or not, it must be acknowledged that the NAACP has been and continues to be an agent for positive change in the U.S., and has made the country a better place.
