A clash of styles in contest to lead Boston’s NAACP
Boston Globe - 10/02/2014
The century-old Boston NAACP is an all-volunteer organization, sustained by its paid membership.
Its presidency, an unpaid post, comes with a big platform and the power of the NAACP’s legacy.
Emmett Price, a Northeastern University professor and local minister who knows both men, said he sees the Curry-Ellison contest as good for the community, showcasing two worthy opponents in an election set for Nov. 24.
“Michael Curry will be forced to take a different look inside the organization to see if it is really meeting the needs of the different constituents in the city, because Larry Ellison is going to push a different conversation,’’ Price said.
