NAACP - MEAB

Founded in 1909, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is the oldest and most effective civil rights organization in the country. No other organization has the history of striving for justice and equality and fighting for civil rights that the NAACP does.

In 1942, when the United States was focusing its efforts on struggles abroad brought on by World War II, the Black residents of Metuchen and Edison were focusing on a different struggle: racial equality in their communities. As a result, on October 13, 1942, the charter for the Metuchen-Edison Area Branch of the NAACP was received. During the tumultuous Civil Rights Movement era of the ‘50s and ‘60s, members of the Metuchen-Edison Area NAACP branch were instrumental in bringing about changes relating to discriminatory housing practices and segregation in schools.
