Rock Co-sponsored Event - We Shall Not Be Moved: Women in the Civil Rights Movement
In the narrative of the 1960's Civil Rights Movement the crucial role of women continues to be too often obscured. Based on her experiences as a staff worker with the student-led Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) in the South, the production of the 14-hour Eyes on the Prize series, and as co-editor of the memoirs of 52 SNCC female activists in Hands on the Freedom, Ms. Richardson will highlight powerful stories of the strong local leaders--many of them women and young people--who led and sustained the southern movement of the 1960's. Like today's Black Lives Matter activism, women and young people were at the center of that movement.
