SNCC: The New Abolitionists


snccbookcoverHoward Zinn tells the story of one of the most important political groups in U.S. history. SNCC: The New Abolitionists influenced a generation of activists struggling for civil rights and seeking to learn from the successes and failures of those who built the fantastically influential Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). It is considered an indispensable study of the organization, of the 1960s, and of the process of social change.
