NAACP Exists because of Jewish Community

Officially started sometime in May 1909, they like to say it was founded February 12, 1909, this is because it would have been Lincolns 100th birthday. Several white people were involved with forming this organization including Mary White Ovington, William English Walling and Henry Moskowitz. They in turn invited others to join them. Amongst them were; W. E. B. Du Bois, Ida B. Wells, Archibald Grimké, Oswald Garrison Villard, Florence Kelley, and Charles Edward Russell. The organization was well funded by the Jewish community. W. E. B. Du Bois was the only black co-founder of the NAACP and served as Director of Publicity and Research. The first black president was elected in 1975.
