CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The president of the Charlotte branch of the NAACP has resigned after six years of leading the local chapter of the civil rights organization.

The Charlotte Observer reports (https://bit.ly/1KCRcaB) the Rev. Kojo Nantambu said in a statement that the resignation will give him more time to spend with his ministry, his family and his position with the North Carolina NAACP State Conference.

Nantambu also said he was taking time off for health reasons.

Rev. Corine Mack, a community activist, has been sworn in as Nantambu’s replacement. Her term will be two years.

Mack has been a member of the NAACP for 25 years, and part of the Charlotte branch for the past eight years. Prior to becoming president, she was community affairs chair for the local branch.
