The NAACP named Roslyn Brock, VP of advocacy and government relations for Bon Secours Health System, the chair of the board of directors. She is the youngest person to serve in this position.

The appointment of the 44-year-old, along with CEO Benjamin Jealous, 37, reflects a shift in the organization's leadership and its effort to "increase youth involvement and regain its stature," notes USA Today. Brock says she wants the NAACP to focus on key issues like education, healthcare, and civic engagement.

In her position at Bon Secours, she acts as chief spokesperson for the health system on issues relating to government relations, advocacy, and public policy.
