Attorney General Eric Holder to give keynote at NAACP dinner, May 6

 DETROIT (AP) — U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder will deliver the keynote address at next month’s Detroit NAACP’s 57th Annual Fight For Freedom Fund dinner.

The event will be held Sunday, May 6, at Cobo Center. Holder follows U.S. Rep. John Lewis of Georgia who gave last year’s keynote.
Other recent speakers at the event have included civil rights leader the Rev. Jesse Jackson, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr., and former President Bill Clinton.
Holder was appointed attorney general by President Barack Obama. He served as senior legal adviser to the Obama campaign in 2007-2008 and was acting U.S. Attorney General in 2001.
The Detroit chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has billed the event as its largest annual fundraiser, drawing 10,000 people each year.
