NCCU Alum William Barber to Step Down as NC NAACP Chair

The Rev. William J. Barber II will step down as head of the state chapter of the NAACP in June, after more than a decade of leadership that has given the civil rights organization a prominent voice in state politics and its leader a higher profile on the national stage.

Barber will help organize a new Poor People’s Campaign in Washington, D.C., and 25 states even as he continues to serve as pastor of Greenleaf Christian Church in Goldsboro. He also will remain on the national NAACP board.
