GREENSBORO, N.C. — A North Carolina college takes stock of the history and future of black activism.

The University of North Carolina at Greensboro on Friday explores the century since the NAACP was created to work for civil and economic rights. The event is open to the public.

African American Studies program director Tara Green said the conference will urge attendees to think about where the black community is now and where it should be going.

A poet and scholar of blues and black culture is the featured speaker. University of Kansas professor Anthony Bolden will talk about the lack of change in what he calls the Age of Entertainment.

RALEIGH — The president of the NAACP says too many North Carolina residents lack health insurance for people on Capitol Hill to delay passage of a health care overhaul bill until
2010.

Benjamin Todd Jealous spoke Thursday at a news conference in Raleigh with the Rev. William Barber, president of the state chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

Jealous was responding to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s suggestion this week that Congress may fail to meet a year-end deadline to get a bill to President Obama. Jealous said the tens of millions of people who lack insurance coverage, many of whom are poor, black or both, can’t wait any longer.

The House is poised to vote this weekend on its health care bill.
