NAACP names a new president
The NAACP has a new president
35-year-old Ben Jealous is the youngest president in the organizations’s history. He was introduced at a news conference in Baltimore Saturday afternoon.
Jealous is a former News Executive and lifelong activist, who says he is an optimist.
“We are raising black children and the outlook is wonderful in many ways. We have a black man with real shot at the White House and it’s work that this group has done to end and diminish racial hatred, it’s a big part of why that’s possible,” said NAACP President Ben Jealous.
Jealous says under his leadership the NAACP will work harder to connect with people through the internet.
