On August 16, 1908 a riot broke out and creaked mass destruction. Six months after the riot people began to believe that the African Americans should have someone or a group to stand up for their human rights. February 12, 19909 the National Organization for the Advancement of Colored People was created. A day that which is known to be Abraham Lincoln's birthday.
History of the NAACP and Civil Rights

The Purpose

The main reason for the National Organization for the Advancement of Colored People is for the people to feel as if someone is there for them if they believe that they are being treated unfairly because of there race.


The NAACPs mission was to show the people that there is change for everyone and ensure everyone that there is quality in the world for the "minority"


The NAACP supported people that went to court and wanted freedom and quality. They created rallies to show that treating people a certain way because of the race, skin color or even how they look should not be tolerated and will not be tolerated.


The NAACP wanted to help minorities and other people that do not get a fair chance in the world today. They figured that creating this will help create equality for others. NAACP created the organization to fight segregation in courts. Their impact in the Civil Rights movement was showing others that what the American society is doing now is not right and we as a people deserve equality through out society.
