About Our Branch
The Fort Lauderdale Broward NAACP has been on the frontline since 1945 and over the past 78 plus years, our organization has been a vital component of the Advancement of Colored People. We have played a pivotal role in ensuring that political, educational, social, and economic equality are available to all citizens.

About NAACP National Organization

Founded in 1909, the NAACP is the nation's oldest and largest civil rights organization. From the ballot box to the classroom, the thousands of dedicated workers, organizers, leaders and members who make up the NAACP continue to fight for social justice for all Americans.

The NAACP was founded by a diverse group composed of W. E. B. Du Bois, Ida B. Wells, Archibald Grimké, Henry Moskowitz, Mary White Ovington, Oswald Garrison Villard, William English Walling (the last son of a former slave-holding family), Florence Kelley, a social reformer and friend of Du Bois, and Charles Edward Russell, a renowned muckraker and close friend of Walling who helped plan the NAACP and served as acting chairman of the National Negro Committee (1909), a forerunner to the NAACP.
