Civil Rights Movements: The Student Non-Violent

286 Words2 Pages
I learned a lot about the Civil Rights Movements. I chose to research the Student Non-violent

Coordinating Committee (SNCC) because I am a student; I hoped it would help me to

understand how people my age were feeling during the 1960’s. The SNCC was active from 1960

– 1966. I learned that many other groups and people were working towards public awareness

and racial equality. The movie clips that I got to watch showed how violent the protests were.

I didn’t know that the SNCC was part of the Freedom Rides. The Freedom Rides were

responsible for changing Interstate Commerce Regulations. Those regulations controlled where

African American’s were allowed to travel and eat. I didn’t know that the SNCC was part of the

March on Selma Alabama.
