Who to watch in 2014: Michael McClanahan
President, NAACP Baton Rouge Branch
2013 Accomplishments: Became president of the Baton Rouge Branch of the NAACP, took the ﬁght for equality and inclusion for all and especially Blacks to the streets. We marched and ﬁle a suit against Turner Industries; supported a suit against City Court; and openly spoke out against discrimination at the State Ofﬁce of Alcohol and Tobacco Commission.
What to expect in 2014: NAACP taking an active role in the educational system and the direction it is headed; taking an active role in the breaking up of the City and annexation of other parts; ensuring the consent decree of the BR police department are fully implemented and shine a spot light on evil and wickedness in and around the Greater Baton Rouge area and hold those accountable who choose to practice and uphold it.
