(BALTIMORE – October 8, 2018) – Kobi Little is a man on a mission. On Saturday, he was elected as the new president of the Baltimore Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the second oldest branch in the nation. Little beat out Michael Johnson, a local activist, 49 to 20.
In a statement to Bmorenews on Saturday, Little stated, “Today, I have come full circle.”
He continued, “I joined the NAACP as a teenager and now I am blessed and humbled to be President of the Baltimore NAACP. Today represents a new season for our branch and our city. To God be the glory. As we move forward, I am committed to unifying the members of our branch around an agenda that will lift our people and our city to new heights. I invite Mr. Michael Eugene Johnson and all who offered themselves as candidates to stay involved, offer ideas and join us in service. I’m ready to get to work and my first priority is building the biggest GOTV effort that Baltimore has ever seen. The stakes have never been higher for our city, our state or our nation and the Baltimore NAACP will work tirelessly to make sure our voices are heard on November 6th.”
