Summary/Abstract: The Serb Cultural Club (SKK) was established in Belgrade towards the end of 1936 by Serb intellectuals, politicians and economic leaders to promote the social, cultural, and economic development of Serbs in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. After the formation of the Banovina of Croatia on 26 August 1939, the SKK carried out a revision of its programme and began during the second half of 1939 to act as the staunchest critic of political reforms undertaken under the Cvetković-Maček Agreement (Sporazum), and thus became the main proponent of the anti-Banovina and anti-Sporazum movement among Yugoslavian Serbs united behind the slogan "Serbs unite".
