Crist Appoints NAACP Officer as Advisor

February 12th, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda

In addition to being Abraham Lincolnís 200th birthday, today is also the 100th anniversary of the NAACP.

Governor Charlie Crist spent the morning with Black leaders for a Civil Rights Roundtable at the Governorís Mansion. Crist also appointed NAACP State President Adora Obi Nweze as a special advisor on civil rights. Nweze says it is the first time any sitting NAACP officer has received such an appointment.

“First of all, you’re the first governor, in this United States, to appoint a president of the NAACP state conference to minority outreach. The first one,Ē Nweze said. ď That speaks, not only to his heart, but to what he believes is a mission and goal for this state, and that is to include everybody under the tent.”

Crist also met with the House Black Caucus and is holding a Black History Month celebration at the Governorís mansion tonight.
