The Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) is a civil rights organization that played a key role in the civil rights movement. The Southern Christian Leadership Conference consists of localized chapters and affiliates that are located throughout the country. SALC anti-apartheid campaigns in the 1970s and 1980s included protesting the purchase of coal from South Africa by the Southern Company, coordinating anti-Krugerrand gold coin campaigns in the South, and staging protests at South African consulates and honorary consulates in Alabama and New Orleans.
