Hoping to harness the enthusiasm and willpower of young people to end segregation, founders Ella Baker, James Lawson and Julian Bond organized protests and actions across the south. SNCC was vital to the impact of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.</p> Tue, 13 Apr 2010 13:51:00 +0000 Frank Stasio & Susan Davis 9352 at http://wunc.org
