North Carolina NAACP president to step down

RALEIGH, N.C. -- RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The NAACP leader who launched the "Moral Monday" protest movement in North Carolina isn't seeking another term as state chapter president, saying he'll focus instead on a poor people's campaign like the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. once sought.

The Rev. William Barber disclosed in an interview late Wednesday that he next plans to work with several groups on that campaign around the U.S. after he wraps up 12 years as North Carolina's NAACP president next month.
