NAACP President Waves White Flag
After five years of hard work, Ben Jealous is resigning.
There will be a new face for the NAACP after December 31 of this year. Ben Jealous, the organization’s current president has said the job has taken up too much of his time.
Jealous was NAACP’s youngest president, taking the title at the age of 35. Now 40, Jealous has spent the past 5 years growing the organization. During his time as president, he helped update the face of the NAACP by advancing it’s interest in social media and nearly doubling the financial revenue.
What’s next for the NAACP? Jealous has left a 5 year plan for whoever steps up to take his place. On the agenda is the elimination of the death penalty and increasing voter registration.
Who should fill the shoes as the NAACP’s next President?
