About Us

Our History

The National NAACP organization was formed in 1909 by a coalition of citizens consisting of members of the Jewish and Caucasian communities. Since its inception, the organization has evolved into a premier civil rights advocacy. The Clarksville Branch of the NAACP was chartered on September 9, 1955. 

Our Mission

We focus on assisting members of the local community with problems relating to equality and racial conflicts. The branch has adopted a progressive agenda focused on addressing issues associated with education, employment, crime, housing equity, religious freedom, police brutality, political involvement, accountability of elected officials, and fair share agreements to eliminate racial prejudice and inequality.
