SCLC Names LSherie ‘Emerging Leader’

The very beginnings of the SCLC can be traced back to the Montgomery Bus Boycott. The Montgomery Bus Boycott began on December 5, 1955 after Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to give up her seat to a white man on the bus. The boycott lasted for 381 days and ended on December 21, 1956, with the desegregation of the Montgomery bus system. The boycott was carried out by the newly established Montgomery Improvement Association (MIA). Martin Luther King, Jr. served as President and Ralph David Abernathy served as Program Director. It was one of history’s most dramatic and massive nonviolent protests, stunning the nation and the world.

SCLC is a now a nation wide organization made up of chapters and affiliates with programs that affect the lives of all Americans: north, south, east and west. Its sphere of influence and interests has become international in scope because the human rights movement transcends national boundaries.


What an HONOR to be featured in this prestigious magazine! To be named an ’emerging leader’ after less than a year as an entrepreneur is nothing short of a blessing. I am even more motivated than ever before.  My belief that working together is the start of accomplishing collective visions to recreate a world of peace, positivity and support.  While I am grateful for being recognized by such as esteemed organization, this now becomes my ultimate test- continuing my journey- strengthen my skills- walking the talk- building a community.

Thank you to every single person who has encouraged, supported, recognized, prayed for and assisted me in any way! This movement is in full motion! Join me as I continue what has been placed in my heart to do… my purpose.   – LSherie
