The Charleston Branch of the NAACP is the oldest branch in the state of South Carolina. Every year for 102 years we’ve hosted the Annual Freedom Fund Gala. The Charleston Branch NAACP was established April 14, 1917, eight years after the founding of the NAACP. The gala recognizes the branch’s illustrious history while also celebrating current progress in social justice.
