Kurtis Blow & NAACP Ban the “N” Word

kurtis-blow1.jpgHip-Hop pioneer, Kurtis Blow, and the NAACP were scheduled to hold a press conference on Sunday, June 24 at Fellowship Chapel in Detroit to announce the banishment of the “N” word. Blow and the Detroit Branch NAACP President, Rev. Wendell Anthony, were set to reveal the details behind a mock funeral procession and burial of the “N” word during the 98th Annual NAACP National Convention. Unfortunately, the press conference was canceled when Kurtis Blow could not make it to Detroit due to flight cancellations. The event has not been rescheduled as of yet, but the “N” word will still be banned during the NAACP Convention, which takes place in Detroit from July 7 to 12.
