The NAACP will no longer boycott the state of South Carolina.
The group announced the decision via Twitter:
Breaking–Emergency resolution passed by the NAACP National Board of Directors at #NAACP106, ending the 15 year South Carolina boycott.

The NAACP originally boycotted the state in 2000, when the issue of flying the Confederate flag at the state capitol was raised. The South Carolina state legislature voted last week to remove the flag in the wake of last month’s shooting at Charleston’s Emanuel AME Church that left nine dead.
