Michael Teasley, white president of NAACP at HBCU, found dead

The first white president of a student chapter of NAACP at an HBCU has been mysteriously found dead. Michael Teasley, age 40, took the position in 2010. The cause of his death is unknown. The Huffington Post reports:

Michael Teasley, a white student who became the first white president of an NAACP student chapter at a historically black college, was found dead in his apartment on Monday. He was 40 years old.

Teasley was elected to his unlikely position at Jackson State, in Jackson, Mississippi, in 2010.

“I’m doing the exact same thing that other people were murdered for in the 1960s,” he told the Jackson Free Press in 2011. I started out registering people to vote, and I got to be president of the organization…and I don’t have to worry about being murdered. it’s like a breath of fresh air.”
