Black History Month is over, but we didn't get a chance to celebrate a hero in the civil rights movement right amongst us. That hero is NAACP President Nelson Linder. On March 1, NAACP members gathered to celebrate and appreciate the work Linder has done in the Austin community to fight for civil rights over the last 18 years. This event reminded us that, although Black History Month is over, there are incredible leaders in this movement that should be recognized and appreciated for their efforts.
Thank you, Nelson!
