Jews and the NAACP

I was reading something in The Economist yesterday that mentioned that NAACP was started by “a group of Jewish, white and black activists” and I did a double take. The NAACP was founded by Jews?? Who knew?

Head over to the NAACP website to learn more about the Jewish co-founder, Dr. Henry Moskowitz, who was a doctor, a civil-rights activist, and eventually the Commissioner of Public Markets in New York City.

The NAACP is dealing with some tough times these days, but continues to do good work, advocating tirelessly for civil rights. Consider joining today as your celebration of African American History Month.
