NAACP Cobb County Branch Records, 1947 - 2017

The Cobb County Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) was reorganized in 1982. It was previously known as the Marietta Branch of the NAACP. Presidents before the reorganization include Rev. Jesse W. Cook, Hugh Grogan, Rev. R. L. Johnson, and Elsie Densmore, who was a founding member of the Marietta Branch. From 1980 to the present time, the branch has been led by six presidents: Dover Ferrell (1980-1982), Oscar Freeman (1982-1986), Jerry Dodd (1986-1992), Sandra McGary-Ervin (1992-1994), Donnie Perry (1994-1997), and Deane Bonner (1997-present). The records of the Cobb County Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) consist of materials from the office of the President, during the terms of Donnie Perry (1994-1997) and Deane Bonner (1997-present). The bulk of the collection dates from 1983 to 2001, and includes administrative records, certificates, clippings, committee records, conference materials, correspondence, fliers, leaflets, minutes, miscellaneous materials, newsletters, photographic prints, programs, and publications. Other records of interest include materials from Oscar Freeman, who served as the NAACP president from 1982 until 1986, and personal records of Deane Bonner, the organization's current president. Select items have been chosen for digitization and are available via this repository. The full collection is held at the Kennesaw State University Archives.
