Thompson urges group to keep up progress
“Everything good in this country has had the NAACP’s name behind it,” Rep. Bennie Thompson told attendees at Freedom Fund Banquet on Thursday, Oct. 18.
Thompson was the keynote speaker at the event, hosted by the Tunica Chapter of the NAACP. He was formally welcomed and introduced by chapter president Mark Hudson.
Thompson said Tunica had come a long way since it was brought to the national spotlight by impoverished conditions along Sugar Ditch.
