Baltimore Could Host 2016 NAACP Convention

Posted:

BALTIMORE (AP) - The NAACP says the site of its 2016 national convention, reported to be Baltimore, has not yet been selected.

The civil rights groups said in a statement Thursday that its convention planning committee recently heard presentations from Baltimore; Austin, Texas; Cincinnati, and St. Louis. It said the ongoing selection process will include visiting the proposed sites, and recommendations will be made to the board of directors in October.

Tessa Hill-Aston, president of the Baltimore NAACP branch, said in an email on July 23 that the national board had selected Baltimore to host the 2016 convention.

Hill-Aston said Thursday that she could not immediately comment on the national group's statement or why she reported that Baltimore had been selected.
