Eight page report prepared by Isaiah DeQuincey Newman, field secretary of the South Carolina Conference of Branches, NAACP, dated August 13- August 19, 1962.

Also included is a special report to Gloster B. Current, director of branches for the NAACP, about "Operation 8-13-62," the planned boycott and picketing of S.H. Kress and F.W. Woolworth stores in South Carolina. The report summarizes the boycott strategy meeting, held at Palmetto Educational Association Building in Columbia, South Carolina on August 5-6, 1962, and attended by branch and Youth Council presidents and advisors. The report names the NAACP members who are assigned to supervise the campaign locally.

The report includes an outline of sessions held at the Week-End Youth Retreat.
