Hill-Aston re-elected Baltimore NAACP president

The Baltimore City NAACP has re-elected Tessa Hill-Aston to a third term as president. She was first elected in 2011, the first woman in more than 40 years to lead the Baltimore branch since civil rights icon Enolia McMillan. “I am humbled and honored by this vote of confidence from the active membership of the Baltimore NAACP,” Hill-Aston said in a statement. “We have registered thousands of new voters in Baltimore, won numerous national awards and opened several new high school chapters. But there remains much work to be done to ensure justice, fairness and equity, and the NAACP is called upon every day to stand up for and with the men, women and families of this city.”
