Writer KIA GREGORY, a native of North Philadelphia, pleads with visiting members of the NAACP to help stop the killing of our children.
I know this is a sobering greeting to our city. I wish I didn't have to write it.
But desperate times call for desperate measures.
As I'm sure you know, there are a lot of people who believe the NAACP is an organization past its time, a faltering relic on the verge of extinction.
An organization without a clear purpose.
I hope this open letter has helped provide you with one.
We need all the help we can get.
