Abstract

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) has had a dual agenda, civil rights and progressive social welfare, since its founding; however, little attention has been paid to its social welfare agenda. This article examines the organization's social welfare agenda during the Great Depression. The interests of the NAACP in New Deal reform legislation included the National Industrial Recovery Act, the National Labor Relations Act, the Social Security Act, and the Fair Labor Standards Act. In spite of the NAACP's efforts, this legislation was not helpful to many African Americans and, as a result, created long-standing problems that are not easily resolved.
