(1964) and NAACP March, photographs
National African American organizations were visible and
persistent allies with their Boston counterparts, forming local
chapters, supporting local movements, and turning up in force for
local demonstrations. The National Association for the Advancement
of Colored People (NAACP) supported the Freedom Stay-out school
boycott in 1964, encouraging local institutions to form "Freedom
Schools" where students would continue to learn despite leaving
public schools in protest. Later in 1975, after years of supporting
the drive for desegregation in Boston schools, the NAACP organized
a march in Boston on the 21st anniversary of the Supreme Court decision
in Brown vs. Board of Education that ended school segregation. Representatives
from chapters all across the country gathered to demonstrate in
support of court-ordered desegregation in Boston schools.
