Larry Rubin and the Spirit of SNCC

Thursday, September 30, 2010 - 3:16pm
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee, one of the major Civil Rights organizations that marshaled sit-ins, freedom rides, and voter registration drives in the long and violent struggle to end segregation in the United States. Larry Rubin '65, served as a field secretary from 1961-1965. He will speak about his tumultuous and dangerous years as a SNCC organizer (including his arrest while supporting the Freedom Schools during the Mississippi Summer project of 1964) and about the lasting impact of this history-making Civil Rights organization. He is now carrying on SNCC's inspirational work through his involvement in the SNCC Legacy Project.
