Records of a local anti-apartheid organization formed in 1985 by residents of Charlotte (N.C.), who were "concerned about the ongoing crisis in South Africa and neighboring countries." The organization sponsored a number of events, protested loans by local businesses to the South African government, and invited visits by speakers who would "share insights and information with citizens of our community."
The La Coalición project was created to document the first thirty years of the Latin American Coalition in Charlotte, North Carolina. The project was conceived in relation to the thirtieth anniversary of the Coalition as a way to preserve oral recollections of the organization, its growth and the impact it has had on the Charlotte community as a whole.
