*We Got A Winner – Stacey Abrams Must Be Considered for Next NAACP President
Listen to a taping of Stacey Abrams Congressional District Election Night Rally. If you did not hear her, you missed the unveiling. She is the Leader. I’ve told you before. I don’t just follow anyone just because they are in a lead position.. I haven’t been an NAACP member since graduating from college. Since King, the leadership was just not there. You had Wanna Be’s but not true leadership. I’m not saying the leadership had not accomplished things, but sorry fully they were not leaders. I’ve accomplished things, but people know me as a “defender of others”, a “hard worker”, “a good record keeper”. Those attributes did not lead me to believe that I was a leader. I’m an organizer. Stacey Abrams is an organizer and leader. It’s in her voice. It’s in her charisma. It’s in her deliverance.
Check out what she has done.
Stacey Y. Abrams is the House Minority Leader for the Georgia General Assembly and State Representative for the 89th House District.
