NAACP: Sterling’s Lifetime Ban Isn’t Enough, Want To Meet With Silver « CBS DC
Before Silver’s announcement, the NAACP’s Los Angeles chapter
withdrew its decision to give Sterling a lifetime achievement award, and
returned money he donated.
Sterling, 80, had been scheduled to receive the honor on May 15 as
part of the 100th anniversary celebration of the Los Angeles branch of
the nation’s oldest civil rights organization. He had been chosen to
receive the award because of his long history of donating to minority
charities and giving game tickets to inner city children. The NAACP has
honored Sterling several times in the past.
