Message From Our President
Greetings, on behalf of the Sandusky Unit of the National Association of the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), we would like to welcome you to our website. The city of Sandusky, Ohio has a rich history in the fight for civil rights and freedom for all.
Sandusky, Ohio was a major stop on the Underground Railroad, prior to the abolition of slavery in the United States. Many slaves, searching for freedom in Canada, made their way to Sandusky to cross Lake Erie and travel by boat to Canada to find new found freedom. Today, the Sandusky Unit of the NAACP is proud to carry on this powerful legacy.
At this very crucial time in our country, it is imperative that we build upon this foundation and continue to address the needs of our community and our City.
I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as the president of the Sandusky Branch of the NAACP, and to work with the people in our great city. We invite everyone to come join the Sandusky Branch of the NAACP. Martin Luther King Jr. stated in his “I Have A Dream” Speech, in 1963, “Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy.” Today in 2019, over five decades later, we continue to strive to make his dream a reality.
