CLEARLAKE – The Clearlake branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) installed its new officers at its January meeting.

The group met on Jan. 10.

The oath of office was administered to the new officers by Daniel Coleman, former president of the Vallejo branch of the NAACP and longtime member of the Clearlake branch.

The newly sworn in administration consists of President Aqeela El-Amin Bakheit, Vice President Rick Mayo, Secretary Dolly Townsend and Treasurer Bessie Mayo. St. Elmo Mosby and Gloria Harris were elected to the executive board. The officials will serve two-year terms.


The mission of the NAACP is to ensure political, social and economic equality of rights of all persons and eliminate racial hatred and racial discrimination. Any person in accord with the principles and policies of the Association may become a member with the consent of the board of directors.

The monthly meeting of the Clearlake branch of the NAACP is currently scheduled for the second Saturday of each month at 1 p.m. at the Clearlake Public library, located at 14785 Burns Valley Road.
