The Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) was formed in 1960 by a group of black college students in North Carolina who, two months earlier, had staged the first sit-in to protest segregation. Sit-ins quickly spread throughout the South as an effective nonviolent direct action. SNCC organized voter registration and demonstrations against segregation all over the South. SNCC played a leading role in the Freedom Rides, the 1963 March on Washington, Mississippi Freedom Summer and the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party. Volunteers from SNCC and from the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) were also instrumental in the early days of the United Farm Workers Movement.
Production Notes: This is one of a set of 5 posters made for SNCC using photographs by Danny Lyon. (see #1740; 2622; 3486; 3493)
