A group of state and area dignitaries gathered Saturday in front of Seymour Hall on the campus of Talladega College to place a marker honoring a significant, if not particularly well-known, event from more than a century ago.

The first NAACP chapter in Alabama – or anywhere else in the Deep South – was established in 1913 at Talladega College.

This short-lived local chapter was established just four years after the national organization was founded in New York in 1909 and four years before any other Southern chapters were established.
