From Civil Rights to Black Power: Tracing the African American Freedom Struggle

The Chicago Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) History Project in cooperation with the SNCC Legacy Project will use this year’s Black History Month conference to study the important period of the national Black Power and Black Liberation movement through discussion, film, and music in an intergenerational arena that will include participation from activists who were there as well as young black organizers of today. This two-day conference will revisit an understudied and often misunderstood, but crucial, part of the ongoing African-American fight for freedom, social justice and humanity.
