NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Keith Caldwell has announced that he’s resigning as President of the Nashville Branch of the NAACP.

NAACP Nashville shared a message from Caldwell on Monday morning, saying the resignation is effective immediately.

In the post, Caldwell said a series of “philosophical differences with the NAACP State Conference President” resulted in his decision.

“I will continue to labor in the vineyard in other capacities as we work to make justice a reality in community,” he said in part.

Caldwell was nearing the end of his two-year term at the time of his resignation.
