"MOTHER OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT"

One of the NAACP's most cherished goals was to end lynching in the United States. Galvanized by the last recorded lynching in Maryland, Lillie Carroll Jackson, Clarence M. Mitchell, Jr., Juanita Jackson Mitchell, Carl Murphy, Thurgood Marshall, Margaret Carey and their many allies worked tirelessly toward ending the practice of lynching and other racial injustices

in our country.

Throughout the museum, discover their journeys from local to national victories that have changed the nation for all Americans.
