NAACP in Alabama Logo

The first branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in Alabama was founded at Talladega College in Talladega, Talladega County, in 1913, four years after the national organization was founded. By the 1940s, the state boasted 35 branches, with members working to end segregation and promote the civil and legal rights of Black Alabamians. Today, the NAACP in Alabama continues to focus its efforts on fighting racial discrimination.
