Focusing on the NAACP's campaign for voting rights, the author challenges the legalistic and bureaucratic image of the NAACP and reveals a politically astute organization that did much to open up the electoral process to greater black participation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Outstanding. . . . Great history and a great story."
"An outstanding analysis of both the NAACP and the ongoing struggle for the right to vote."
"A clear and thought-provoking assessment of the organization's accomplishments during its first sixty years."
"The NAACP is regarded as an old-fashioned, conservative, and even 'Uncle Tom' organization by some. . . . [Berg] argues that the association's often conservative aims have to be seen in the context of particular moments in time and the nature of the leadership itself."
"[Berg] directs this work to scholars and general readers in an effort to correct what he views as the underrating of the contributions of the NAACP to American racial equality. . . . Berg details the growth of the NAACP, its successes and failures, and the major figures who helped advance the NAACP, including W. E. B. Dubois, Thurgood Marshall, Moorfield Storey, Walter White, and Oswald Garrison Villard."
