NAAL meeting, Oakland, CA
*On this date, in 1887, the National Afro-American League was formed. Put together by Timothy Thomas Fortune, it preceded the NAACP.
Fortune was the crusading editor of the New York Age, the leading Negro journal of the era. The organization dedicated itself to protest based on racial solidarity and self-help. It became defunct in 1893 because of a lack of support and funds.
