The NAACP, the nation’s oldest civil rights organization, will host its 107 th national convention from July 16 to July 20 in Cincinnati, Ohio. The theme for this year is “Our Lives Matter, Our Votes Count.”
Ohio Gov. John Kasich won’t speak at the Republican National Convention where Donald Trump is set to become his party’s presidential nominee, but he will speak to the NAACP national convention that Trump is bypassing. Emmalee Kalmbach, a Kasich spokeswoman, confirmed Friday to The Associated Press that Kasich will speak in Cincinnati on Sunday, the day before the RNC begins across the state in Cleveland.
