The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People fought segregation in a number of ways, including creation of awareness, through peaceful demonstrations and court actions. NAACP was founded in 1909 and became one of the most popular civil rights organizations.
NAACP fought against segregation by organizing awareness creation campaigns that included speech-making, lobbying and publicizing the need to have all people treated equally. Members of this organization also organized several peaceful demonstrations that helped in raising the concerns of those who were being segregated. The organization equally achieved success by taking matters to court in order to find legal settlement to thorny issues.
