Detailed Collection Information

Historical Note

The Philadelphia Branch of the NAACP is affiliated with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. It institutes and supports legal and other actions in the fields of civil rights, discrimination, education, housing, employment and law enforcement. In 1967 the Philadelphia Branch was divided into ten area offices by order of the National Board of Directors. In 1990, the five active NAACP Philadelphia branches merged to form a unified branch.  

Description of Collection

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, Philadelphia Branch Records, consist of two accessions: URB 6 (1943-1963, 28.5 cubic feet), and accession 836 (1968-1991, 17 boxes). Separate inventories for both accessions can be found below, followed by a list of photographs (1 box).

URB 6 contains correspondence, minutes, case records, reports, membership files, clippings, and other records from the files of the executive secretary and field secretary. Includes material on African-Americans, race relations, discrimination, housing, legal matters, employment, education, juvenile delinquency, public health, police, unions and legislation concerning these and other matters.

Accession 836 contains partial records of two NAACP branches that merged with the larger Philadelphia organization in 1990: the North Philadelphia Action Branch, which accounts for most of the records, and the West Philadelphia Branch, which accounts for less than 10 folders of material.  The other three Philadelphia branches that merged at the same time, South Philadelphia, Northeast Philadelphia, and Northwest Philadelphia (Germantown) are not represented in this collection. Included in this accession are administrative records for both the North Philadelphia Action Branch and the West Philadelphia branch, comprising executive committee meeting minutes and general membership meeting minutes, as well as correspondence and activities files.  The more voluminous files of the North Philadelphia Action branch include newspaper clippings as well as files on individuals such as the former branch presidents and community leaders, Cecil B. Moore and Alphonzo Deal.  The bulk of the accession (more than 8 boxes) consists of plaques and awards that were either given or received by the NAACP Philadelphia branches.  Also included are audio tapes and oversized dry-mounted photographs.

Photographs consist mostly of unidentified and undated images, and include photography by Charles Mosley, Jack T. Franklin, and Peace Photo.
