  • organized by Chairman Roslyn M. Brock, the NAACP has sponsored its annual Leadership 500 Summit that promotes a civic agenda for black professionals and “emerging leaders” in the modern-day civil rights movement.

    “This year’s Leadership 500 Summit is particularly important as the political campaign season begins; the baton of leadership is passing to the next generation of civil and human rights activists,” Brock said in a statement.

    Brock’s leadership summit is impressive and it’s changing lives. Since its inception in 2005, the summit has trained more than 1,200 black professionals – many of whom perhaps could easily step into a position with the Obama campaign.

    I hope Stephanie Jones included Brock in her recent e-mail appeal to find African-American staffers because Brock is a forward-thinking, hands-on civil rights activist who knows a little something about young black leaders and politics.
