Niagara Movement

The Niagara Movement was founded at Niagara Falls in 1905 under the leadership of William Du Bois. The group drew up a plan for aggressive action and demanded: manhood suffrage, equal economic and educational opportunities, an end to segregation and full civil rights. The Niagara group virtually came to an end with the establishment of the the National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People (NAACP) in 1909.
