Who's Gonna Lead The SCLC?

The debate over who should lead the SCLC continues…

The Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) is still stuck in a battle over leadership.  One of the factions that lost a lawsuit over who should lead the group now says it is appealing the judge’s ruling.

Several leaders from the SCLC which include ousted treasurer Spiver Gordon and President Markel Hutchins, held a news conference Monday to announce an appeal in which they continue to seek control over the group.

The well-known civil rights group has been struggling with a long-running leadership dispute.

A ruling in September from Fulton County Superior Court Judge Alford Dempsey placed control of the group with a different leadership party siding with the Rev. Bernice King who was earlier elected to lead the SCLC.

    This is becoming very disfunctional, Dr Bernice King was appointed as president to this organization and she should lead in that capacity. Markel is trying to get this org disbanded based on his actions. We have this crabs in the barrel attitude leftover from slavery that we will seek to destroy something rather than let it survive under a different leadership.

    black people need to find god in their own words
