BALTIMORE (AP) -- The NAACP says it will hold its 2016 national convention in Baltimore.
Tessa Hill-Aston, president of the Baltimore branch of the civil rights organization, said in an email on Wednesday that the national board, meeting this week in Las Vegas, selected Baltimore as the site.
The organization has been headquartered in Baltimore since 1986.
