The Gloucester County Virginia National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) was founded on March 13, 1939. The founding branch president at the time the charter was signed was local funeral home director G. Nelson Carter Sr. Carter bailed local civil rights pioneer Irene Morgan out of jail after she was arrested in Middlesex County, giving rise to the legal end of segregation in interstate transportation. Carter’s wife, Miriam, was the first Black woman to attend William and Mary Law School. Their granddaughter, local teacher and attorney Dianne Carter de Mayo, is an active member of the Gloucester NAACP today, and an alumna of William and Mary.
