SNCC Training 50 or So Years Ago -The Freedom Movement

  It's one thing to see some of the films and photos on the topic of non-violent "Action", I say action because what was done was far from passive in spite of appearances.  All of the movement's activities required some level of training. The more dangerous the action, the more intense the training. The following video is a dramatization of a SNCC training session for those who were to sit-in at lunch counters as well as other places. The NAACP, CORE and other groups all conducted similar training sessions. Even these intense training bouts didn't always prevent injury but they did enable the protestors to maximize their efforts.

The 1964 murders of Schwerner, Chaney, and Goodman "50 Years"

These young people were slain while working to advance the cause of justice
in the United States of America. Their work is at this time still unfinished.
Let's acknowledge their sacrifice and continue the work where they left off.
There is still a need for "Freedom Schools" in the USA, where are the volunteers?

Don't think that the concept of "Freedom Schools" was lost, they are
still an important part the movement for advancement.
