NC NAACP Conference Starts in Wilmington
By Catherine M. Welch
Wilmington, NC – The NAACP state conference starts Thursday in Wilmington.
State President William Barber says the conference will cover the NAACP's 14-point agenda, that spans from health care to home foreclosures.
Barber says he's particularly concerned about the quality of education in North Carolina's schools and its link to gang violence.
It's one of the group's issues he says that is relevant to all North Carolinians.
If people are interested in justice, if people are interested in dealing with racial disparities, our work will not be done until the gaps are closed in health care and education and economic development.
The NAACP state conference is taking place today at Union Missionary Baptist Church and moving the downtown Hilton for tomorrow and Saturday.
