The Rev. William Barber is speaking out on the Wake County school board elections, but he doesn't want the media to hear what he'll be saying.
Barber, president of the state NAACP, has scheduled a "community mass meeting" for 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Martin Street Baptist Church, 1001 E. Martin St. in Raleigh. The meeting is not open to the media.
During the meeting, Barber will give a presentation. The audience will also hear from "political action experts." Topics include early voting, voter education and mobilization.
