Candidate Reagan wouldn't address the national convention of the NAACP, President Reagan, apparently, will. Reagan is said to be committed to speak to the group's annual gathering, scheduled for June 28-July 4 in Denver.

Last year, Reagan alienated many black voters by not accepting an NAACP invitation to speak to its convention in Miami Beach. He said he didn't learn of the invitation until "the last minute."

He sent an apology, however, and went on to address another key black organization. the National Urban League, at its national conference in New York.

If he returns for an encore -them Urban League meets July 19-22 in m Washington -he will be the first chiefm executive to formally address both civilm right groups in the same year.m
