Georgia NAACP President Edward DuBose is stepping down at the end of his term and will not seek a fifth term as state president of the organization.

DuBose made the announcement at a press conference in Columbus Saturday. For the last eight years he has held the leadership position. "A good leader has to know when it's time. A leader has to know like Moses did when to past the torch. It's time for me to past the torch to a Joshua," he said. DuBose served as a local branch president in Columbus before moving to the state.

He plans to let the NAACP elect a new president at the 71st annual state conference that will be held in Columbus this fall. This is the first time in 10 years the October 3-6 conference will be held in the area. DuBose said he wanted to hold it in Columbus to say "good-bye to the home crowd."

More than 500 people are expected to attend and discuss many issues prevalent in the black community, including the new law on expunging criminal records.
