The SNCC was the only national civil rights organization led by young adults. Organized in 1960 and mentored by Ella Baker, SNCC activists became full-time organizers, working with community leaders to build local grassroots organizations in the Deep South. During its mass meetings, individuals sung freedom songs and also demanded justice for inequalities. For more information, visit www.snccdigital.org.
