Transcript of SNCC

The Student Nonviolent
Coordinating Committee

The Middle of The Committee
As SNCC became more active politically, its members faced increased violence. In response, SNCC migrated from a philosophy of nonviolence to one of greater aggressiveness after the mid-1960s, as an advocate of the improving "black power" movement, a face of late 20th-century black nationalism. The shift was personified by Stokely Carmichael, who replaced John Lewis as SNCC chairman (a person designated to preside over a meeting) in 1966–67. While many early SNCC members were white, the new found accent on African American identity led to greater racial separatism, which unnerved portions of the white community. More-radical elements of SNCC, such as Carmichael’s successor H. Rap Brown, gravitated toward new groups, such as the Black Panther Party.

How SCNN Begins
My sources were...




This committee began as an nonracial group recommending nonviolence. It adopted greater aggressiveness late in the decade, reflecting nationwide trends in black activism. The Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee was founded in early 1960 in Raleigh, North Carolina, to capitalize on the success of a surge of sit-ins in Southern college towns, where black students refused to leave restaurants in which they were denied service based on their race.

The End of The Committee
Toward the end of its existence, SNCC was torn apart by troubles. In 1966, clashes with the police in several cities began when 80 police officers raided SNCC's Philadelphia office, charging that dynamite was stored there. The federal bureau of investigation, which had been wiretapping SNCC since 1960. Critics blamed Carmichael's inflammatory speeches for causing riots, and he left to join the Black Panthers. Amid growing militancy and an expanded vision that included antiwar protest, financial support began to dry up. SNCC disbanded in 1970 shortly after its last chairman, H. Rap Brown, went underground to avoid arrest.

Even though the SNCC doesn't exist anymore they still are important to the Civil Rights Movement. If this group never existed, today wouldn't be like today. I am glad they created this group.
The SNCC was a big part of the Civil Rights Movement. They helped different events become successful. They helped the March on Washington, Greensboro Sit-ins, Freedom Rides, Freedom Summer, Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party, and even more events.
