As reported by Spencer Buell on the Boston Magazine website, the NAACP will hold its 111th Annual Convention in Boston.
The conference will take place in July at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center and attract an estimated 10,000 attendees.
“The NAACP Boston Branch is honored to serve as the host Branch for the NAACP National Convention in 2020,” Tanisha Sullivan, the president of the NAACP’s Boston branch, said in a statement. “As the oldest Branch in the NAACP, the Boston Branch has a long and impactful legacy in the fight for racial justice. Given of our engagement in this fight, we know that 2020 will be a pivotal year for our country. This is sure to be a historic gathering.”
The national NAACP noted in a press release that Boston was “home to one of the association’s earliest conferences in 1911 and the Boston Branch remains one of the strongest branches in the nation.” More information on that is on the Boston NAACP website.
