History

     The Culpeper Branch, Unit 7058 of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People made several attempts over the years to form a Branch in Culpeper. The first Branch was founded in 1945 by the late Mortimer M. Marshall. Although details are unclear of what transpired during that time, the first Chartered Branch in Culpeper was established on September 14, 1953.

      The Culpeper Branch faced many challenges throughout the early years and participation from the community was quite limited. On April 17, 1978, the Culpeper Branch lost its charter due to a lack of membership.

      Realizing Culpeper needed the strength and unity of an organization like the NAACP, the Culpeper Branch was re-charted on January 14, 1980. Since that time, the Branch has strived to improve the political, educational, social and economic status of minotiry groups in the community. The struggle to end racial discrimination and its adverse effects on African Americans and other minorities continues today.
