Disciples group cancels South Carolina meeting in Confederate flag dispute: In support of an NAACP boycott

African-American members of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) are joining other church bodies in boycotting the state of South Carolina for displaying the Confederate flag on the state capitol grounds.

The National Convocation, a Dis ciples group of some 1,000 African Americans, had scheduled its 2010 biennial session in Charleston, South Carolina, but it dropped plans to meet there at the request of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.
