Terry Mills’ voice carries. His highly animated and impassioned conversations are often punctuated with a good deal of laughter and expression, and everyone within earshot knows without a doubt that Mills is close by. But the Corpus Christi native not only engages those around him through his winning personality, but his seemingly boundless energy is also filled with a purpose. Whether he is being interviewed on television, leading a march or addressing a large crowd, Terry Mills always has something important to say when it comes to racial equality, civil rights and making positive changes that will go on to benefit our entire community.
“My parents and grandparents raised me to look at people for who they are and not the color of their skin,” Mills said. “They also said that no matter what people look like on the outside, we all bleed red blood and cry clear tears.”
That profound, yet simple message that Mills learned early in his life is one that he has never forgotten, and it continues to inspire all of the different projects and causes that he is involved in today. Perhaps the most visible of these is Mills’ position as both the president of the Corpus Christi chapter of the NAACP and the organization’s area coordinator. Mills not only oversees the NAACP’s activities in Corpus Christi, but he is also involved in projects that take place throughout the Rio Grande Valley area that reaches south of Corpus Christi down to Brownsville, Harlingen and McAllen.
