The nations oldest Civil Rights organization is looking for a new head.

The NAACP Executve Board in January voted not to renew Cornell Brooks contract. One of the issues they have publicly stated is a feeling that he is not fighting enough against the current administration on race issues. April Ryan spoke with Brooks on the phone while he is in Miami as the Board is holding its meeting there. A general board vote on his future takes place tomorrow.
