Licking county naacp history


The Licking County NAACP chapter was thriving. Under the presidency of Ralph Franklin, the chapter worked hard to bring change to our community. Unfortunately, President Franklin passed away and due to lack of upkeep and organization the Licking County NAACP chapter 3210 B was disbanded.

In 2020, after the tragic murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Abury, and many other African Americans, a group of Licking County residents, worked together to try and reestablish the chapter. They felt that the community needed a presence more than ever and that by reestablishing the NAACP Unit 3210 B, our community could make a come back during these trying times.

Now led by President Bryanna Stigger, the Licking County NAACP is making a comeback to serve their community for the better. They are optimistic and hopeful that the reestablished chapter with bring ample opportunities to our county and will connect all peoples in our community as we work toward equity and unity.
