MOVEMENT MEETS FOR THE FIRST TIME

Niagara Movement members began meeting on the Canadian side of the
Niagara Falls on this day in 1905. This all-African American group of
scholars, lawyers and businessmen came together for three days to
create what would soon become a powerful
post-slavery Black rights
organization. Although it
 only lasted five years, the Niagara Movement
was an influential
 precursor to the civil rights movement of the mid-20th
century.
