Welcome to the
Hanover County NAACP.
Founded in 1946


The idea of establishing a Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People was born in the minds of Dea. Ernest E. Roane and Dea. William R. Claytor, both now deceased. They shared in the dream of Hanover County having an organization dedicated to the realization of the principle of equality and justice for all people. On September 29, 1946, at the First Union Baptist Church in Mechanicsville, this idea became a reality.
