Lufkin NAACP Reorganizes Dormant Chapter

After being dormant for ten years, the Lufkin chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has reorganized and come back to life, with a new board that took office at the beginning of the year.

New members were elected to the branch in November, according to NAACP Lufkin Branch President Guessippina Bonner.

The NAACP is one of the oldest civil rights organizations in the country, known for marching, protesting and rallying against racial inequality, police brutality and discrimination.

Locally, the Lufkin chapter has made many positive changes, including bringing three elementary and primary schools to the North Lufkin area.

NAACP Trainer Ann Boney says many people think, incorrectly, the organization is just for blacks and African-Americans.  Boney says “It wasn’t just created by black people. It was created by black and white people whose interest was the enhancement of humanity.  That is what we are about here in Lufkin”
