As I was growing up in the segregated South of the 1950s, the NAACP was an important part of my world.
I heard about it in school — many teachers and principals were members and openly advocated for students to become involved.
But it was in church that the influence of the NAACP was most pervasive. Often, pastors and other church leaders were officers in the local branch, and the NAACP was considered, in effect, an arm of the ministry of the church.
Now, however, with the organization’s decision to support same-sex marriage, it appears that the black church is no longer welcome in the NAACP. (The Patriot News)
