Title:Constitution, Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, 29 April 1962

Description:

This constitution, revised at the annual meeting in 1962, explains the purpose of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). SNCC was formed in April 1960 at a conference of African American college students held at Shaw University in Raleigh, North Carolina. The conference was originally held in response to the sit-in movement that began in Greensboro, North Carolina on February 1, 1960, when four African American students sat down at the Woolworth's lunch counter and refused to move when they were denied service.
