Defining the Struggle

This chapter tells the story of the NAACP's founding in a new way: by tracing the many bridges from past to future that the late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century racial justice leaders discussed earlier in the book provided to the NAACP. It shows how these leaders offered formative ideas that propelled the NAACP through its infancy, including ideas about both organizing strategy and substantive issue agendas. It also documents the many lines of transmission of experienced activists from the Afro-American Council and the Niagara Movement to the local and national NAACP committees that provided this new organization with its growth and enduring strength.
