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.
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.
The Clarksville National Association for the Advancement of Colored People will hold the 64th Annual Freedom Fund Banquet on 26 October at 7pm at Central Services South Complex. Our theme this year is "Keepers of the Dream: When We Fight...We Win!" with keynote speaker Former State Rep. Johnnie Turner, District 85. Contact 2nd Vice Bridget Childs or Loretta Morris for tickets!
