The Gwinnett County Branch of the NAACP was reactivated in 2004 by the late Rev. John
Stewart, Jr. who was a civil rights activist. Now well over a decade, the Gwinnett Co. Branch of
the NAACP continues to do the work of the people by addressing issues that promote racial
hatred and racial discrimination involving people of color in Gwinnett County.
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is an AfricanAmerican civil rights organization in the United States, formed in 1909. Its mission is "to ensure
the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate
racial hatred and racial discrimination".
