Seven page monthly report prepared by Isaiah DeQuincey Newman, field secretary of the South Carolina Conference of Branches, NAACP, dated June 10- July 8, 1964. The report begins with a summary of speaking engagements, travel, and correspondence; this is followed by a list of highlighted activities that summarize fundraising, voter registration, and public relations efforts; the list also includes speaking engagements across the state. This is followed by a transcript of the statement and goals adopted at the NAACP summit meeting held in Columbia on June 5, 1964. These goals are listed at the state and local levels, and establish the importance of engagement in school desegregation cases, fair employment initiatives, and the desegregation of public facilities. The goals also emphasize the importance of appointing African Americans to state and local committees, commissions, and boards. The report ends with a brief update of civil rights demonstrations taking place in Charleston.
