President/CEO, SCLC

There were many trailblazing and monumental achievements made during
the turbulent years of the Civil Rights Movement. The SCLC (Southern
Christian Leadership Conference) played a crucial role in the movement.
In fact, the organization continues to uplift and empower communities
even as it embarks on its 49th Conference commemorating the its 50th
anniversary. As president and CEO of the SCLC, Charles Steele Jr.
implements business principles and programmatic forecasts to raise
money and pull together much needed resources. “It’s now time to
internationalize and institutionalize the SCLC, and that’s what we have
done. We’ve gone worldwide, but our mission is to stay in the streets
and to advocate [for] those who are less fortunate than we are,” says
Steele. With 2007 marking 50 solid years of active involvement for the
organization founded by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Steele wants to
make people more aware of the fact that the struggle for equality is
far from over. “Many people today think that we got here by osmosis,
but we must know our history and understand that it was because of the
unity that we came together and basically worked holistically towards a
goal. That goal is freedom, justice and equality for all God’s
children,” explains Steele. – jason thompson
