TheNAACP's annual board meeting tomorrow is likely to be the organization's most tumultuous to date, and could result in the ouster of its board chairman, William Gibson, says TIME National correspondent Jack White. Gibson, a supporter of former NAACP executive director Benjamin Chavis, has been accused of misusing funds and doing nothing to stop sexual harassment of some employees. Chavis was fired last August amid charges that he used NAACP money to settle a sexual harassment lawsuit. The chief rival for Gibson's job is Myrlie Evers-Williams, widow of slain civil rights leader Medgar Evers. The organization's 64-member board is slated to elect an executive director tomorrow. While the ousting of Gibson seemed certain a few weeks ago, sources tell White the "count is very close now."
