The NAACP was formed partly in response to the continuing horrific practice of lynching and the 1908 race riot in Springfield, the capital of Illinois and the birthplace of President Abraham Lincoln. Appalled at the violence that was committed against blacks, a group of white liberals that included Mary White Ovington and Oswald Garrison Villard (both descendants of abolitionists), William English Walling, and Dr. Henry Moscowitz issued a call for a meeting to discuss racial justice.

Some 60 people, seven of whom were African-American (including W.E.B. DuBois, Ida B. Wells-Barnett, and Mary Church Terrell), signed the call, which was released on the centennial of Lincoln's birth. Since then, the NAACP has grown into being the nation's oldest, largest, and most widely recognized grassroots based civil rights organization.

The NAACP has changed America’s history. Since its founding in 1909, NAACP has played a critical part in the nation’s civil rights movement:

BLACK LEADERS MEET WITH REPRESENTATIVE MCNERNEY TO DISCUSS VACCINES & COVID-19 IMPACT


A select group of Black leaders and doctors met with Rep. Jerry McNerney, D-Stockton, on Friday afternoon to discuss their communities’ ongoing challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Drs. Bennet Omalu, Kim Rhodes and Otashe Golden joined Stockton’s NAACP President Bobby Bivens and East County’s NAACP Third Vice President Cheryl Cooper in conversation with McNerney. 

The panel met publicly over Zoom for just over an hour to discuss the disproportionate impact the pandemic has had in their communities in the Central Valley.  

“It is clear that there is a stark contrast between how it’s affecting different communities,” McNerney said.  

“Black Americans are almost as three times as likely to be hospitalized after contracting the virus,” he added. “Yet the vaccination rates among Black Americans and people of color remain low.” 

The congressman then proceeded to ask questions to his guests, inquiring what they were doing within their communities and what troubled those around them.
