Roslyn M. Brock  

Chairman, NAACP

Roslyn McCallister Brock is the youngest person and fourth woman ever elected as chairperson of the NAACP. She actively leads the nation's most significant civil rights organization in its mission to ensure that all individuals have equal rights and that racial discrimination is abolished.

For decades, Brock has served as a leader in the NAACP. As a committed community advocate who works on behalf of vulnerable populations, Brock fights for quality education, civil rights, economic justice, decent housing, and accessible and affordable healthcare for all. "My conscience is the conscience of this nation," she has said. "As a nation, we must put aside individual differences and work diligently to develop new partnerships, break new ground, and chart new pathways to impact the public debate."

Brock has created her own success, receiving accolades along the way. She created the NAACP Leadership 500 Summit, which recruits and trains a new generation of civil rights leaders for the NAACP. As a healthcare administrator, she managed programs for the New York State Health Department and the United States Agency for International Development. Her numerous healthcare, community service, and leadership awards include being named one of Essence magazine's "40 Fierce and Fabulous Women Who Are Changing the World," being featured on BET's 2010 Black Girls Rock!, and receiving the 2010 National Urban League's Women of Power Award.

Brock speaks with conviction, encouraging us all to find our voice and lead the way for civil and social justice.
