I would like to wish the NAACP (National Association For The Advancement of Colored People), a Happy Happy 103rd Birthday! I would also like to thank Ms. Roslyn M. Brock, Chairman & MY President of the NAACP, Mr. Bro. Benjamin Todd Jealous for their many warm personal emails.

As a national member, I am proud of all of the hard work MY President Bro. Benjamin Jealous is doing for our people so selflessly I might add. Not like the grandstanding, buffoonery, and downright silliness that goes on from other presidents in other branches I'm told (for example that so-called president here in Cincinnati). No, Bro. President Jealous has a deep love for his people and he shows it by the seriousness in the way he conducts NAACP business. Along with his whole professional demeanor as we see it in this brother, that's why myself and others do not mind calling him ... The Honorable President Bro. Benjamin Todd Jealous.

Below is an email I received just today from MY President Jealous & Sis. Rosalyn Brock, that I don't mind sharing with all of you.

Once again, from all the members of The Black Fist Organization & CEO and Faculty here at The Black Fist Blog, HAPPY 103RD BIRTHDAY NAACP!!!

Dear General Nikki X.

Today marks the 103rd birthday of the NAACP.

For more than a century, Americans have relied on the NAACP to right the nation’s injustices, often against seemingly impossible odds. From ending the barbaric practice of lynching to dismantling segregation to fighting for equality of opportunity for all Americans, the NAACP’s first century changed the world. And our second will be no different..

Founders’ Day has always been a time for reflection and renewal for the NAACP family. We are grounded in our past and focused firmly on the future.

Please join us Wednesday, February 15 for an historic phone briefing hosted by the leadership of the NAACP, as we discuss the next century of NAACP priorities. The call starts at 8:00 PM Eastern/5:00 PM Pacific, and space is limited to the first 5,000 callers. Click on the link below to RSVP, and we will send you call-in details on Wednesday afternoon:

This will be a special event— a shared moment of fellowship with thousands of other members of the NAACP family as we recommit to changing the world, again. Click on the link to RSVP.


Roslyn M. Brock, Chairman, and
Benjamin Todd Jealous, President & CEO

PS: Founders' Day is an excellent time to renew your NAACP membership.
