WASHINGTON, Aug. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — New NAACP President Derrick Johnson will address the future of the NAACP at a National Press Club Headliners Luncheon on Tuesday, Aug. 29.
Johnson, a longstanding leader of the NAACP, assumed the interim presidency in July and is tasked with leading the organization through a period of “re-envisioning and reinvigoration,” the organization said in its announcement of Johnson’s new post.
The NAACP recently drew national attention when it issued a travel advisory for Missouri, calling for African American travelers to “exercise extreme caution when traveling through the state given the series of questionable, race-based incidents occurring statewide.”
