NAACP'S WHITE FEMALE PRESIDENT SPEAKS IN HAMMOND
"Poverty politics and the war in Iraq"
Saturday, February 25, 2006
HAMMOND, LA Covington attorney Annie Spell is the only white, female NAACP chapter president in the United States. On Saturday evening, she was among the speakers to address the Greater Tangipahoa NAACP's Freedom Fund Banquet on the SLU campus. She pulled no punches.
In a drum beat of criticism against the Bush administration, Spell called the government to task on such hot-button issues as "illegal" wiretaps, Katrina relief, the occupation of Iraq, inadequate public education, and what she called "poverty politics" in Louisiana and across America. "Today, we suffer from poverty politics and an unchecked totalitarian administration. African Americans, in particular, suffer from voter disenfranchisement, limited access to polling places, and outdated technologies." She pledged that she would "Speak truth to power" and encouraged the audience to join her by actively participating in the NAACP.
