Lancaster civil rights leader Larry Darnell Dixon Jr., past president of the county NAACP, died Saturday after a long illness. He was 75.
“Larry was one of my dearest friends,” said county council member Charlene McGriff, who partnered with Dixon on civil rights efforts for more than 30 years. “He loved his family, his church and the NAACP…. He was a pioneer in civil rights in Lancaster.”
