Today in Black History: The NAACP Is Founded

On February 12, 1909… the 100th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth… a group that included African American leaders such as W.E.B. Du Bois and Ida B. Wells-Barnett announced a new organization called the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. The NAACP came as response to a race riot in Illinois and a disturbing trend of lynchings during that time.

The NAACP  remains the largest and oldest active civil rights group in the nation with an emphasis these days on voter registration, legal defense and activism. (Source: History.com)

I'm still trying to figure it out too! I'm a child of God that has a lot to say. I've been given a platform on the air to say it but I tend to be a bit lengthy so enter my website. The "confessions" you see on my website are not the gossip kind but rather conversations with artists, authors, speakers and teachers within the faith-based community. Also, my journey has been colorful, rich and sometimes really hard so, I look for answers and respite through writing. My mom wanted me to write a book  and I'm working on that, so bear with me as I fumble my way through. I'm working on balancing my extremely fun work life with my personal life that is filled with challenges these days. I know that God will see me to victory so... welcome to my life. ~Randi
