Borders of Equality

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter examines the youth movement in Baltimore, from early NAACP college chapters to other groups in the 1960s. It looks at the NAACP’s creation of Youth Councils and College Chapters to sustain and mold the ongoing struggle and create continuity across the generations by socializing youth into black activist history. The chapter also considers how the NAACP channeled youth activism and discusses the role of the youth movement in pushing the anti-lynching campaign in Baltimore. Furthermore, it looks at the role of Juanita Jackson, daughter of NAACP Baltimore branch president Lillie M. Jackson, in the City Wide Young People’s Forum, and the group’s connection to the NAACP, along with the emergence of the radical youth group known as the Civic Interest Group and the Congress of Racial Equality.
