Social Activist

Dr. Ran­dolph Bracy, Jr. — Social Activist

Upon assum­ing the pres­i­dency of the Orange County Branch of the NAACP, Social Activist, Dr. Ran­dolph Bracy, Jr. along with other local African Amer­i­can min­is­ters took the City of Orlando and the Orlando Magic to task for cap­i­tal con­struc­tion in the pre­dom­i­nantly African Amer­i­can com­mu­nity of Par­ramore where res­i­dents of that com­mu­nity were promised a fair share of the eco­nomic devel­op­ment pie through a doc­u­ment called the Blue­print that was rat­i­fied by Orlando City Coun­cil in con­junc­tion with the Orlando Magic.

When it was dis­cov­ered that there was “lip ser­vice” to the promises, Bracy called for a Direct Action against the City of Orlando and Magic at City Hall by the African Amer­i­can preach­ers and the Orange County Branch NAACP.

The video below was taken at the first Repub­li­can Party National Debate in 2011 which took place in Orlando, Florida. Bracy is seen speak­ing before the debate at the lack of com­pas­sion by any of the can­di­dates rel­a­tive to health care for the poor.
