Volume 3: The most remarkable aspect of the civil disobedience and sit-ins of the 1960s was the leadership of young people. More than any other organization, SNCC best reflected this youthful engagement. Importantly, young activists were challenging other young people to join them, and also challenging established civil rights organizations to speed up the pace of their efforts. Their commitment and energy led to the grassroots organizing work that defined the freedom movement of the 1960s. In this session, panelists discuss their deepening involvement with the Southern Movement as grassroots community organizers. Harry Belafonte makes an unscheduled appearance in the session

SNCC 50th Anniversary Conference Volume 35 - Dinner Keynote: Danny Glover, "The Real Costs Lie Ahead" FEATURED SPEAKER: Actor Danny Glover. Actor Danny Glover was 13-years-old in 1960. As a college student at San Francisco State in 1968 "SNCC articulated my own rebelliousness." He recounts the campus struggle for an ethnic studies department and explains that SNCC "taught us organizing." Glover elaborates on what he considers to be the new era of struggle in the 21st century. "We are world citizens today", says Glover, "and 2.5 billion people in this world are living on less than one dollar a day." limate change, immigration, global rights for workers, are complex challenges. With the United States so dominant, African Americans--"the moral center of this country"--Have to find ways to be active in these struggles

Volume 6: At SNCC's founding conference in 1960 it was James Lawson who captured the political imagination of the students. Years before the 1960 gathering, Lawson was imprisoned for 14 months because of his conscientious objection to the Korean War. In 1958 Lawson became the second black student admitted to the Divinity School at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. Soon he began mentoring a group of students in nearby HBCUs. These students launched a movement in Nashville that was arguably the most disciplined and committed to non-violence in the South; and it produced some of SNCC's most notable figures: Diane Nash, John Lewis, Bernard Lafayette, James Bevel, and Marion Barry. Fifty years later, Rev. Lawson demonstrates that he has lost none of his fire, describing "plantation capitalism" as "the root cause of our problems." He denounces a nearly one trillion dollar military budget existing "for the sole purpose of protecting U.S. capital" and argues that Barack Obama's election does not mean that justice has arrived. "The power and energy of the 1960s movement is needed for the 21st century," he argues. In this address Lawson outlines his belief in the continuing value and necessity of non-violent struggle for social change and justice
