WASHINGTON, D.C. – July 17, 2009 – On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the National Association of Black Journalists, (NABJ) extends its congratulations and appreciation for the great work the organization has done to achieve a shared mission.

“Few organizations can achieve a centenarian milestone, fewer still can make such a broad and wide-ranging impact on the livelihood of African Americans and other people of color as the NAACP has,” said NABJ President Barbara Ciara. “One hundred years of fighting oppression is a long time; though the journey is not over, we praise the vitality and commitment of the NAACP leadership to confront a new era and new challenges facing people of color in America.”
