Posted on November 5, 2014

On Wednesday, October 29, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake joined NAACP officials and Tom Noonan, president and CEO of Visit Baltimore, to announce Baltimore as the location for the NAACP Annual Convention July 22-26, 2017. This will be the first time the convention will take place in Baltimore since 2000. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake remarked, “Baltimore’s rich African-American heritage and culture are closely intertwined with the NAACP’s proud legacy, and we are delighted to bring the NAACP convention back home.” 

Visit Baltimore would like to thank everyone who helped in the bid process including Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Lt.
