John L. LeFlore
Non-Partisan Voters League


After the NAACP was outlawed in 1956, LeFlore and the Non-Partisan Voters League took a more active role in civil rights in Mobile. LeFlore served as its director of casework. He was a plaintiff in Bolden vs. Mobile and the judgement changed Mobile's city government to a mayor-council system. In 1974, he was elected as a state representative. The office of the NPVL was located upstairs in the Masonic building.
