Contains a list of NAACP officers for 1924, including President Moorfield Storey. An introductory letter from Storey asks for financial support from readers of the pamphlet. Foreword states that the NAACP "is striving; it is striving to vindicate the American idea ... that every man shall have opportunity for the highest self development and that his achievements shall not be denied recognition on their merits." Includes reports on the Dyer anti-lynching bill, race riots and mob violence, discrimination at Harvard University, an African American veteran's hospital at Tuskegee, Alabama, the Ku Klux Klan, the 24th infantry, the national marriage and divorce bill, and the Sterling-Reed education bill, among other topics. Closes with a report on finances.
