Ralph replaced her within a week.62 Segregation in Washington's workplaces was not a new phenomenon. ... the controversial Washington-Roosevelt meal, it would be a long time before another Black person was ushered into the White House ... -- Founded in March 1912, DC branch of the NAACP quickly became the leading organization advocating for the city's Black community. President Woodrow Wilson's institution of Jim Crow segregation in the federal government in the spring of 1913 galvanized the African American community of DC and the NAACP launched a formidable crusade against Wilson's racist policies. As the preeminent civil rights organization of the nation's capital, it also developed a dual role as a watchdog body to prevent the passage of legislation in Congress that negatively affected African Americans. Archivist and historian Derek Gray chronicles and analyzes the work of the DC NAACP through the civil rights era to the achievement of Home Rule in the District.
