Boston NAACP: Then & Now

These images were posted by the Boston Branch of the NAACP via facebook.

In looking at the historical image juxtaposed with the recent image The Blackstonian asks: Do you notice a difference?

“Historical Perspective: In December 1975, the Boston NAACP’s Branch Office on Massachusetts Avenue was fire-bombed, allegedly by anti-busing foes. The Branch President was Hansford Brown, and that following year the Branch received the National NAACP’s Thalheimer Award for its outstanding work during the year. Includes a picture of 3rd VP Supreme Richardson at a recent protest in the wake of Ferguson and Staten Island.”  via Boston NAACP Facebook Page
