SCLC National Board Clarifies Suspension of Tallahassee Chapter

By  | 

The National Board of Directors of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference is responding to what it says were "inaccurate" statements made to WCTV and other local media.

Despite the comments of a compliance officer, the board says the decision to suspend the SCLC's Tallahassee Chapter was due to administrative failure and had nothing to do with mismanagement of funds related to the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Tallahassee Bus Boycott.

Local chapter members told WCTV on Wednesday they look forward to an investigation and believe the suspension will be lifted next year.
