Mitt Romney hasn’t tried as hard to appeal to Black voters, but he’s hoping to change things with a scheduled appearance at a forthcoming NAACP convention. The Republican presidential hopeful will address audiences at the annual convention, to be held in Houston, next month.

The conference spans six-days, with Romney speaking on the second to last day, according to his campaign.

In the past, the NAACP has been vocal with their critiques against the Republican party, which may prove to be a losing battle for Romney. Although he does have some Black supporters, the 65-year-old has been criticized for not appealing to minorities. It also doesn’t help that the NAACP has long supported President Obama, who is currently in Mexico for the G20 Summit.

Romney will address the NAACP convention attendees July 11.
