Creator:Newman, I. DeQuincey (Isaiah DeQuincey), 1911-1985
Title:Annual Report, [1965], NAACP in South Carolina

1965 Annual Report of the NAACP in South Carolina prepared by I. Dequincey Newman, Field Director of the NAACP South Carolina Conference of Branches. The report details progress made in South Carolina in 1965 within three aspects of the civil rights movement: voter registration, implementation of the Economic Opportunity Act, and school desegregation. Volunteers led by NAACP Task Force Workers registered over 14,000 people in South Carolina during the summer of 1965. Workers staged a march to protest the discriminatory manner in which state officials were implementing the Economic Opportunity Act, and held workshops and study groups to educate people about the Act's provisions. The report lists highlights of school desegregation activities in the state, which include the desegregation of all state colleges and universities, a suit filed to prevent the state from financially assisting private segregated schools, conferences, and the enrollment of 3,900 African-American students in previously segregated schools. The school district concerned in the Briggs v. Board of Education segregation case, Summerton School District, was also desegregated.

The Civil Rights Digital Library received support from a National Leadership Grant for Libraries awarded to the University of Georgia by the Institute of Museum and Library Services for the aggregation and enhancement of partner metadata.
