NAACP secretary advises board against appeal.

Description

NAACP Secretary Roy Wilson attempted to persuade the Board of Directors not to file an appeal after Judge Otis T. Dunangan placed a permanent injunction on the organization in the State of Texas v.

However, it was withdrawn the following February.
