Southern Christian Leadership Conference

Founded in 1957, the SCLC was run by Martin Luther King Jr. The organization was focused on non-violent civil disobedience, and believed that it could use that to gain the civil rights that African Americans lacked at the time. Other prominent members of the organization included Jesse Jackson, Ralph Abernathy, and Andrew Young.
