While the NAACP, SCLC and SNCC are all engaged in nonviolence and peaceful means to protest racial inequality, they used different strategies to disintegrate the South. While King organized black churches in the south, the Student Nonviolent Coordination Committee (SNCC) brought together students with similar ideas.
The SNCC has struggled to embrace the call to use nonviolence as a primary approach, while the SCLC has maintained its commitment to nonviolence, calling it an important factor in creating a moral climate that enables progress (5).
