NAACP Mourns the Death of Carolyn Quilloin Coleman, Secretary to the NAACP National Board of Directors

Carolyn Coleman

NAACP mourns the passing of Carolyn Quilloin Coleman, Secretary to the NAACP National Board of Directors and The Vice President of the North Carolina State NAACP. 

An active community member, Coleman served as Guilford County commissioner for nearly two decades. A fierce advocate for civil rights, she dedicated her life to fighting racial inequalities and was the First African American Chairwoman of the county. Her career includes aiding the 71st Governor of North Carolina, James B. Hunt, for eight years. During her tenure with Governor Hunt, she uplifted minority communities and their concerns. 

The NAACP feels the loss of one of its most dedicated activists and advocates. She is missed dearly by the communities she served. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family, friends, and loved ones during this time.
