Minister Rodney Muhammad, leader of the Nation of Islam Mosque No. 12, has been elected president of the NAACP Philadelphia Chapter, in a contest that saw his slate overwhelmingly defeat his principal opponents at every level.

Also elected with Minister Muhammad were Rochelle Bilal, Secretary; Shirley Jordan, treasurer; Jennifer Whitfield and James Roebuck, vice presidents.


Muhammad defeated several opponents in his commanding victory over his nearest competitor, retired labor leader Thomas Logan, who had been trounced more than a decade ago by former NAACP President J. Whyatt Mondesire.

An active NAACP executive board member for more than a decade, Minister Muhammad was endorsed by a number of key organizations such as Black Clergy of Philadelphia and several major labor unions. He will be officially sworn into office in January and will serve for two years.
