The Frontera Fund is a financial support source for various organizations that work to protect civil, human and migrant rights. In January, the Frontera Fund will acknowledge the work of Dr. Martin Luther King who was the central figure to the Civil Rights Movement during the 60s.
The Frontera Fund supports groups such as the NAACP. The Arizona chapter of this organization is supported by the Frontera Fund.
Since Martin Luther King Day is fast approaching, the Frontera Fund will look back at the Civil Rights Era with the NAACP. Dr. King was a member of the NAACP. He worked with this group when the Civil Rights Movement kicked off in Alabama. This happened in 1955, shortly after Rosa Parks was unjustly imprisoned for not sitting at the back of a bus.
There a few people from the NAACP who still are alive from that time. They lived through that era and some of them known Dr. King.
They said he was a dynamic leader who was charismatic and had the ability of speech. Dr. King was also a very brilliant man who understood the people of the time. He could see what needed to be done and pushed on ahead to finish the job. Read more: Phoenix New Times | Wikipedia and Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund
Dr. King’s involvement in the Civil Rights process was extremely important. His I have a Dream Speech was a climax point in the Civil Rights Movement. He gave this speech at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. Millions of people all around the world heard this speech.
This speech also made the Civil Rights movement within the U.S. an international event. People everywhere realized that America had serious problems with racism.
The NAACP might not have always agreed with Dr. King and his tactics, but they certainly stood behind him. This organization understands how important Dr. King was to their legacy and the movement as a whole. His work was very crucial with helping people of color to find a place within American society.
