Additional Information: 

The Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee was a youth-based civil rights group operating in the American South during the 1960’s. Comprised mainly of African-American students, the committee organized mass voter registrations for African-Americans along with targeting segregation of buses by protesting laws forcing African-Americans to sit in the back of public buses. The group disbanded in 1967.
