The first white president of an NAACP chapter at a historically black college was found dead in his apartment Monday night.
Officials said Michael Teasley, 40, who headed the Jackson State University NAACP chapter, died of natural causes, the Clarion Ledger reported.
State NAACP Chairman Derrick Johnson said Teasley was “a really good guy.”
“Michael will sure be missed. His enthusiasm for the organization and his friendship are things that I will always remember,” Johnson said. “He was a person who was dedicated to ensure that all receive equity and justice.”
