A meeting between Governor Nathan Deal and civil rights organizations including the GA NAACP became explosive when Gov. Deal told them to find “good black people to run” for school board seats in upcoming elections.  The Civil Rights organizations objected to Gov. Deal’s decision to remove the school board members and replace them with newly appointed members which shall be complete by the end of this week. Spokesman for the Governor, Brian Robinson said “Deal was only encouraging them, since race became a major issue during the meeting.”

Edward DuBose, President of the GA NAACP joined us to talk about the meeting and the NAACP’s objective.  Listen to the audio below:
