The New Abolition

Gary Dorrien

Yale University Press

The civil rights movement began in 1884 with a call for what became the National Afro-American League; it had a brilliant movement of hope in the Niagara Movement of 1905 to 1909; it entered a second phase of activism in 1909 with the founding of the NAACP; and the black social gospel provided a home and ballast for the NAACP across the country. The black social gospel tradition that led to King came mostly from the radical and reform schools of the social gospel housed in the NAACP and the black churches.
