When we think of the NAACP, we recall more than a century’s worth of monumental civil rights victories. From Brown vs. the Board of Education to the Mathew Shepard and James Byrd Hate Crimes Act, the NAACP has been at the forefront in the ongoing struggle for the rights of people of color.

As the NAACP hosts its 101st Convention this week in Kansas City, the organization is looking to a younger generation of civil and human rights activists to continue its legacy. These 10 NAACP leaders are all under the age of 35, and represent the new frontline of civil rights advocates who are working to realize the NAACP’s vision of “One Nation, One Dream”.
