Does anyone else think it's strange that the NAACP Convention is being held here? I mean, weren't we just being boycotted a few years ago?
I mean, YEA! But, what's the 411? What's happened?
Per the local website, no indication was given about the riots and the boycott 7 years ago, and this is what the press release from the national organization says:
"Ohio will be the epicenter of our nonpartisan efforts to elect a pro-civil rights Congress [that year], and we look forward to visiting the city again," said NAACP Board Directors Chairman Julian Bond.For more information, be sure to check out our awesome local NAACP chapter
