Greetings NAACPers & Friends,

It is with immense pleasure and pride that I welcome you to the official website of the Columbia, SC Branch NAACP. As the president, I am honored to extend my warmest greetings to each and every one of you who have taken the time to explore our digital home.

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) has a rich legacy of advocating for civil rights, equality, and justice. Since our founding in 1909, we have been at the forefront of the fight against discrimination in all its forms. Our tireless efforts have brought about significant changes in legislation, social attitudes, and opportunities for marginalized communities across the United States.

Today, as we navigate the complexities of the 21st century, our commitment to these principles remains unwavering. This website serves as a hub for information, resources, and action. Here, you will find updates on our latest initiatives, opportunities to get involved, and avenues to support our cause.

Whether you are a longstanding member of our organization, a passionate activist, or someone seeking to learn more about social justice issues, you are welcome here. Together, we can continue the work of those who came before us and pave the way for a more inclusive and equitable future.

Thank you for visiting our website and for your ongoing support of the NAACP. Your dedication is invaluable as we strive to make meaningful change in our communities and beyond.

On Fire for Justice, On Fire for Peace,

L. Oveta Glover, President

White men, age 21 and older, who owned property were given the right to vote in 1776.

The 15th Amendment to the Constitution removed racial barriers to voting in 1870, but states continued to practice voter discrimination and continued to deny Black voters a chance to participate in elections.

The right to vote was extended to white women in 1920.

It wasn't until 1965, after years of intimidation, murders, and advocacy that the path to the voting booth was cleared for Black people with the federal Voting Rights Act of 1965.
