Fighting for Education:

Fighting for Education “ I am just as proud of Manual as a graduate of Manual, as those people are of Central, Richwoods and Woodruff as well, so I am especially concerned about what appears to be a trend to attack the good will and reputation of the people who volunteer at Manual. I know there has been some attempts to, how should I say, to pressure some of the advisory council to either give up the ship, to give up the fight but they don’t intend to; so we don’t intend to stand by while lawyers and other people attempt to attack their credibility. So you are on notice now that if this trend continues the fight is on with the NAACP”. ~ Donald R. Jackson

Slide 9:

“Thank you for your leadership and integrity. I remember several years ago, in Louisville, when things were gloomy and you stepped-up to help the conference. There have been many moments since then to be thankful for your commitment, diligence and intellect. We will continue to call upon you for help even though you are “stepping down”. This is a life-time commitment, just like the Life Member pin you proudly wear in your lapel”. ~ George Mitchell

Slide 11:

“The Evanston Branch is especially grateful for your keynote address in 2009. Some people are still talking about your insightful and knowledgeable recount of the events in 2008. Your comments set the pace for community understanding and respect for the creation of the NAACP”. ~ George Mitchell
