WHAT WE'RE working on

Our committees…

— Civic Engagement

currently working to facilitate all aspects of voter access and political representation using NAACP’s Nonpartisan Empowerment Program that promotes and protects civil rights.

— Criminal Justice

currently working for fair and equitable dispensation of justice for all by shedding light on racially-prejudiced policing, and advocating for the adoption and enforcement of policies that ensure a just system. Our goal is that Black and People of Color feel safe to move about our community.

— Education

currently working to eliminate racial inequities that are so prevalent in the education system and the dismantling of the school to  prison pipeline. The committee stands for: increasing resource equity, improving fairness in discipline, high quality teaching, and a challenging and affirming curriculum.

UPCOMING EVENTS

Our events aim to educate, bring awareness, and further the mission of the NAACP. We work to break down the barriers that separate us and build alliances that are more equitable. Events such as Martin Luther King, Jr. Day programs and our quarterly movie series are opportunities to educate and engage our community. The annual Freedom Fund event is a benefit that finances the work of our branch.

The Fisk Jubilee Singers® are vocal artists and students who sing and travel worldwide.

The original Jubliee Singers® introduced ‘slave songs’ to the world in 1871 and were instrumental in preserving this unique American musical tradition known today as Negro spirituals.

They broke racial barriers in the U.S. and abroad in the late 19th century and entertained Kings and Queens in Europe. At the same time, they raised money in support of their beloved school.

The Fisk Jubilee Singers® continue the tradition of singing the Negro spiritual around the world. This allows the ensemble to share this rich culture globally, while preserving this unique music.
