NAACP urges voting in minority communities


At a political rally that was part revival at the Trinity AME Zion Church in Dunn Thursday evening, the message was simple: get out and vote.

"We still believe in America," said North Carolina NAACP President Dr. William Barber. "We still believe that love is greater than hate."

Barber spoke to a small crowd of organizers, from Harnett, Lee, Johnston and Moore counties. For weeks, the civil rights group has crisscrossed the state. They are talking about the importance of voter registration and voting protection. Their aim is to inspire one million African-American, Latino, Native American and other residents to get out and vote.

That message will be preached at other rallies in Winston-Salem, and Fayetteville before Election Day.
