Jimmie Garland Sr., of Clarksville, TN, was recently elected Second Vice President of the State of Tennessee National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) during its 61st Annual State Convention.
“Having worked side by side with Mr. Garland during past civil right campaigns I can not stress enough how important it is to have him as the NAACP State Vice President given the current racial history and race relations Clarksville has had to struggle with on a daily basis”.
“With an NAACP state official at “ground zero” so to speak, it should go a long way in helping to right social injustice and to ensure the political, educational, social and economical equality of minority citizens in Clarksville-Montgomery County”.
