History of the Davenport NAACP

Step into the history and ongoing narrative of the Davenport branch of the NAACP in the Figge’s Learn to Look gallery. The exhibition includes memorabilia from 1916 to the present, including images of the original 1918 charter application and the by-laws and constitution of the Davenport branch. A collage wall of documents, letters and images offers insight into the difficulties encountered by the city’s first organizers, whose tenacity in an adverse environment resulted in the formation of the Davenport branch of the NAACP.
