SNCC Legacy Project 60th Anniversary Conference

Sixty years ago, young activists gathered at Shaw University in Raleigh, North Carolina to begin planning their generation’s obligation to continue a struggle begun long before they were born: the Freedom and Empowerment of Black people. The Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) was born out of this gathering. SNCC was then the only youth-led national civil rights organization. Now, at this important time in our history, the SNCC invites you to join them on April 16 -19, 2020 as they gather in Washington, DC to carry this struggle forward.
