FEATURED SPEAKERS Avon Rollins (SNCC Field Secretary) Bill Hanson (SNCC Project Director Arkansas) Ivanhoe Donaldson (SNCC Field Secretary) Matthew Jones (SNCC Staff/Freedom Singer)
Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia so dominate the image of SNCC's work that its organizing projects in Arkansas, Cambridge, Maryland and Danville, Virginia are often overlooked. The panelists reflect on the events in Danville - the "Last Capital of the Confederacy" - where SNCC engaged in dramatic protest against segregation and experimented with economic challenge. The panel discusses the significant and unique struggle in Cambridge, Maryland where the protests were led by an older woman from a prominent family. In addition to fighting to end segregation, Cambridge's agenda included health care, housing and work-force issues.
