Cecil County Chapter of NAACP Organized: 1962

NAACP 652As the local chapter of the NAACP prepares to celebrate 50 years of civil rights advocacy a Window on Cecil County’s Past has checked the old newspapers for that year for information.  The Cecil Democrat carried a front page story, but nothing was found in the Cecil Whig.

In February 1962, the Cecil Democrat announced the organization of the Cecil County NAACP branch. A front page photo showed the officers meeting to organize at Wright’s AME Church in Elkton. McKinley Scott of North East was the Vice-President; Mildred Johnson of Elkton was the treasurer and Rev. H. R. Curtis, Elkton, President; and Laurie Loper Charlestown was the secretary.
