After Five Years, NAACP Boycott Still Having Little Effect. (2005). Black Issues in Higher Education, 22(10), 20. Retrieved from EBSCOhost.

This article from the journal Black Issues in Higher Education details the everyday actions of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). The source does not list the author. However, due to it’s location I feel that it is still a worthy and credible source. The article shows a bias in favor of the NAACP and black rights and a bias against the confederate flag. The article details NAACP members from South Carolina and their fight to get the confederate flag off of the South Carolina Statehouse dome. They successfully got the confederate flag taken down, however the flag was moved to a memorial and the statehouse grounds. This was unacceptable to the organization, so they continued to boycott and protest. This article is very useful to help me understand the actions the NAACP takes in order to achieve their goals. The article made me realize that the NAACP and its members are willing to go above and beyond to  achieve their goals. It highlights the struggles that the NAACP is willing to face to get the smallest things changed. During the boycott, the NAACP did not recieve the neccessary support, however they still feel that they must work to change something that is wrong.

    Careful with your “any means necessary” language. I’m not sure that is accurate. See comments on other AB entries for revision suggestions.
