AS KWEISI Mfume looks back on his nine-year tenure as president and CEO of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, he can justifiably feel a sense of accomplishment. Today, the NAACP is strong, widely respected and financially solvent. Its support among young people is growing; college chapters have increased by 75 percent in recent years. Most important, the NAACP and its local chapters across America remain deeply engaged in the continuing fight to ensure that all Americans receive the justice and opportunity that are at the heart of our national creed.

Kathleen Kennedy Townsend will attend a candidate forum Thursday sponsored by the Baltimore chapter of the National Association of the Advancement of Colored People, an aide to her gubernatorial campaign said yesterday.

Lawlah, who represents a majority black district. Townsend has been criticized recently by prominent African-Americans for not embracing their political concerns.

Young, 50, said he hopes to bring effective leadership to the branch, but some black leaders are privately wondering whether his decision foreshadows plans to re-enter the political arena in 2002. Many believe the West Baltimore Democrat is beginning a campaign to oust Sen. Clarence M. Mitchell IV in a race that could be complicated by redistricting.
