NAACP Leaders Will Push Confederate Flag Issue

Dan Sewell, AP, July 14, 2008

NAACP leaders meeting in in Cincinnati say they will step up their campaign against flying of the Confederate battle flag on state grounds in South Carolina.


A 2000 compromise removed the flag from the Capitol dome in South Carolina. It now flies on Statehouse grounds near the Confederate Soldier Monument.

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has continued a boycott of the state.
