One of the nation's most consequential religious and civic leaders, he was actively involved in the social and political issues facing disadvantaged communities.

The Work of the NAACP is critical to improving our communities. I joined because, just as much as our community needs the NAACP, the association needs each of us to step up and share our time and talents to further the progress of civil rights and social justice.
