Welcome to the Stamford NAACP
Jack Bryant, President
Born and raised in Stamford Jack Bryant currently serves as President of the Stamford NAACP. A product of the New York Theological Seminary, he considers himself as a P.W.C. which means "Potter's Wheel Christian". He continues to be molded by God.
Founded in 1909, the NAACP is the nation's oldest and largest civil rights organization. From the ballot box to the classroom, the thousands of dedicated workers, organizers, leaders and members who make up the NAACP continue to fight for social justice for all Americans.
Jack started his work with the Stamford NAACP as the Youth Advisor for the Stamford NAACP Youth Council. During this time a partnership with the 100 Black Men, Inc., Kappa Alpha Psi Stamford Alumni Inc., and the Stamford NAACP Youth Council created an SAT Preparation Course in conjunction with the Princeton Review. This partnership offered SAT Prep Courses to students at a reduced cost.
Also during this time the Mighty Stamford NAACP Community Youth Choir was born. A group of 50 youth started singing at local churches and venues. Their talent was recognized by churches outside of Connecticut as the choir began traveling the East Coast ministering in song.
The members of the Stamford NAACP Youth Council also became involved in voter registration campaigns and volunteer missions. Jack left his role as Youth Advisor to become the 1st Vice President of the Stamford NAACP Adult Branch. He wasn't there long before he was elevated to President within a year.
Under his term as President, the Stamford NAACP along with its mission as a "reactive" organization also became a "proactive" organization. The Law and You Workshop was born with the objective of inproving the relationship between our youth in the community and the police department. Under the leadership of Jack Bryant the Stamford NAACP has become and still is a vital organization within the community it serves dealing with Education, Health, Housing and Criminal Justice issues.
The mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is to ensure the political, educational, social and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination.
