Description: African-American community leaders discuss the discrimination by businesses on Main Street in Columbia, South Carolina. Franchot Brown, a lawyer and the chairman of the Community Relations Council, says he has not received any complaints from the organizations on the progress or representation of the committee. Minister Lincoln Jenkins' main point is the need to raise black employment to 38% in both Main Street businesses and in food stores. Jenkins encourages responsible business practices and defines what he means by the term "responsible." He makes a call to citizens to boycott and picket businesses who continue to discriminate. In response, Brown expresses the right of citizens to boycott, when there is just cause.
