Letter from Joseph A. DeLaine, Sr., in Summerton, South Carolina, to James Hinton, President of the South Carolina branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in Columbia, South Carolina. DeLaine writes of discrimination in voter registration in Clarendon County where many qualified African Americans, mainly teachers, were turned down when they tried to register to vote because whites, including a lawyer named McFadden, do not want African Americans to qualify to vote.
