In November, 23 members and committee chairs of the Kershaw County Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) were present for a four hour leadership retreat seminar.

The purpose of the retreat was articulated by president William B. Gaither as to "identify some of the pressing problems and issues in the Camden and Kershaw County community" and to work toward the alleviation of those problems through the committee structure of the organization.

Also present at the retreat was Dwight C. James Sr. James is the executive director of the South Carolina State Conference NAACP. He gave a very informative, motivational talk, appealing to those present, especially the committee chairs, to utilize the committee structure. James also stated that all the work of the organization is done by the membership. James said that the NAACP has a rich legacy and needs young people to help do future work.

At the end of the retreat, an evaluation form was completed by each member in attendance. The consensus is to make this retreat an annual affair.

The Kershaw County Branch NAACP’s meetings are held the first Thursday of each month at a designated church at 7 p.m. As always, new members are welcomed.
