The Charleston branch NAACP will hold its monthly General Membership meeting at 6:30pm Thursday night at the fellowship hall of Morris Brown AME church located at 13 Morris Street.
The meeting will include an updated on issues being addressed by the Charleston branch members and to discuss the recent wave of officer involved killings and killings of black men across the nation.
The Charleston branch was chartered in 1917- making it the oldest, largest and most diverse NAACP branch in the state. All members of the NAACP interested in justice, freedom and fairness are welcomed to attend the meeting.
The North Charleston City Hall is also hosting an event this Thursday evening with the Charleston branch of the Black Lives Matter movement and the Citizen’s Advisory Board, from 6:00pm to 8:00pm
This meeting is gathering to inform the community on a number of issues including: reviewing and knowing who is policing your community, how to bring a case to court with the power of a subpoena and how to bring peace and safety to your community through positive action.
This meeting comes after the leader of Black Lives Matter Charleston, Muhiyidin Elamin Moyr or also known as Muhiyidin D’baha was arrested last week for disorderly conduct at North Charleston City Hall for interrupting the end of a public safety committee meeting.
D’baha was hauled away as he tried to talk to committee members about the formation of the Citizen’s Advisory Board, which has drawn some criticism from the community since its recent inception and pending status.
