The Congress of Racial Equality or CORE as it was called, was an organization that advocated black power. It was founded in 1942 and was multiracial until 1967. This group fights discrimination through direct action, demonstration, and protest marches. CORE was head quartered in New York, New York. Since 1966, it increased militancy, and stressed on self-help for African-Americans. James Leonard Framer help found CORE and was national director from 1961 to 1966. The CORE and NAACP are working together this very day trying to give blacks the civil rights that they deserve and make racial discrimination just another thing of the past.
