Answer: [spoiler] Head of the NAACP for 25 years.
Walter Francis White was a civil rights leader who was head of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) for more than 20 years. Born in Atlanta in 1893, White graduated college in 1918 and soon joined the NAACP. White was a driving force behind many of the legal challenges brought during segregation, including Brown v. Board of Education. He wrote of his work in civil rights in his autobiography A Man Called White (1948). [/spoiler]
