Members of the NAACP Florida chapter have unanimously voted on a travel advisory for African Americans to avoid traveling to this state.



In a statement released by the NAACP’s Board of Directors Chairman Leon W. Russell said: “The recommendation from our Florida State Conference is a clear indication of just how egregious Governor Desantis’ actions are. Any attempt to intentionally erase or misrepresent Black History is a direct attack on the foundation of comprehensive education. Be clear – Black history is American history. 


BET says The NAACP will decide late this year if the travel advisory will officially be issued.
