SNCC 50th Anniversary Conference Volume 20 - Black Power, Black Education and Pan Africanism FEATURED SPEAKERS: Courtland Cox (SNCC Program Director), Geri Augusto (Secretariat, 6th Pan African Congress), Gregory Carr (Professor, Howard University), Sylvia Hill (6th Pan African Congress), Howard Moore (SNCC Attorney). Throughout the ten years of its formal organizational existence, SNCC did a variety of things it felt necessary: sit-ins, freedom rides, campaigns aimed at the desegregation of public facilities, voter registration drives and the organizing of political parties. Doing what is necessary is a tradition of Black struggle. Pan Africanism, independent Black education and empowerment are all foundations of the Black struggle. In this context of deep political and cultural currents, we look at SNCC in relation to the political struggles of the 1960s. In addition, we look at the institutions beyond U.S. borders which SNCC's ideas helped inform.
