Emeritus Executive Committee Members
The NAACP Los Angeles was founded in the living room of Dr. John Sommerville and Dr. Vada Somerville in 1914. In 1949 Dr. John Somerville was appointed to the Los Angeles Police Commission. Dr. John Somerville served as president of the NAACP Los Angeles for 10 years. Here is a powerful article on Dr. John Somerville. It is written by Sarah Lifton, a Los Angeles-based writer who specializes in history, architecture and education.
