Jones County Branch NAACP Has A New President, Charles Donnie Brown

Hardy Brown Sr.

This past week I received an excited call from my brother Charles Donnie Brown informing me that he was just elected to head the Jones County Chapter NAACP. I was excited for him for several reasons: Donnie (as we call him) has a long history of leadership training beginning as the Jones High School Freshman class president in 1960; his military training as a United States Marine; his education at Shaw University in Raleigh; as an officer Pro-Tem of the Steward Board at St. Matthew AMEZ Church; and most of all the training he received from his parents, Floyd and Essie Brown in civic engagement in the state of North Carolina.

This civic involvement has a very long tradition beginning with Donnie’s great grandparents, James and Betty Brown and grandparents Jonas and Mary Green Brown whom all have helped build a community in Trenton for newly freed Blacks after slavery. James and Betty were born into slavery and taught their children how to survive life in a post slavery era and they passed those skills from one generation to the next.

Donnie is keeping the family tradition alive by accepting the leadership position of president. Our father was known all over the state of North Carolina for his civic involvement.

As a former president of the San Bernardino NAACP Branch, I congratulate my brother and wish him much success as he faces the challenges that come with being president of one of the nation’s oldest civil rights organization.
