The NAACP labeled this town a reactionary town due to its significant involvement in and opposition to the Civil Rights Movement. Dr. Martin Luther King Junior set up what he called "freedom schools" in Depew to educate local blacks on how to peacefully gain their right to vote in Creek County. Thus the black community in Depew is rather strong compared to most of the surrounding towns.
