Interview with Bob Zellner, November 3, 1990 conducted by Catherine Fosl.
Bob Zellner, a white Southerner and anti-racist activist during the 1960s, discusses his involvement in the Civil Rights Movement, beginning when he was a student at Huntingdon College in Montgomery, Alabama. In this interview, he tells of his introduction to the movement when he and four fellow students were asked to leave Huntingdon after attending civil rights meetings and non-violent workshops at a nearby black college. Zellner speaks about meeting Anne Braden, who became a mentor to him, and joining SNCC (Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee) in 1961 as their first white field secretary. He also discusses being arrested various times while working for SNCC and the creation of the GROW (Grass Roots Organizing Work) project, an education center for organizing black and white workers.
