History

The NAACP, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, is the oldest, largest and strongest civil rights organization in the United States. The NAACP was created in 1909 with the merging of the Niagara Movement, a group of young African-Americans led by W.E.B. Du Bois, and a group of concerned white citizens. The principal objective of the NAACP is to ensure the political, educational, social and economic equality of minority group citizens of the United States.

The Records of the Pittsburgh Branch of the NAACP were maintained from the early 1940's while the Honorable Homer S. Brown served as President. The records of the organization document various forms of racism in Pittsburgh as well as cases emerging across the nation. The Pittsburgh Branch participated in fund raising to provide for legal defense in civil rights cases. A recurring problem in the Pittsburgh area was the discrimination at public swimming pools. The NAACP kept files about the Highland Park Swimming Pool,and both the Kennywood and West View Park pools. The Branch eventually formed the NAACP Active Swimming Pool Committee to protect the right of every citizen to have admission without fear of segregation to public swimming pools in Pittsburgh.

The Pittsburgh Branch was active in addressing the concerns of its members by petitioning for anti-discrimination laws, federal aid for education, desegregation, housing discrimination programs, and fair employment practices in order to ensure the basic rights of minorities. Voter registration and membership campaigns are important components of the NAACP's work. By gathering a base of voters committed to Civil Rights the organization supported their candidates into elected positions.
