Local NAACP Invites National Investigation

Questions about the finances of local leader.

Axis Philly reports: “Some executive committee members and officers of the Philadelphia NAACP branch are questioning how long-time chapter president J. Whyatt Mondesire has handled the branch’s finances and they are asking officials from the NAACP’s national branch to intervene and examine the local group’s books.  The concerns focus in particular on the relationship between the local NAACP branch and a long-defunct nonprofit called Next Generation CDC, also headed by Mondesire, which has served as a financial arm of the local NAACP. The CDC has had financial troubles of its own, including back taxes owed.”
