Oxford-Lafayette Branch of the NAACP
Written by Mrs. Susie Marshall

"The Oxford-Lafayette County branch of the NAACP was founded in 1952 at Second Baptist Church by Nathan Hodges, Jr. and others originally under the title of the Lafayette County Improvement Club. The first elected president was Mrs. Mabel McCune. In 1980, they established the W.R. Redmond Memorial Scholarship Fund for the purpose of educating an African-American doctor to serve the area. The Scholarship Fund later became sponsored by the Oxford Development Association."
