Interview with Rev. James Lawson
QUESTION 21
INTERVIEWER:

AND WHAT ABOUT THE FORMATION OF SNCC?

Rev. James Lawson:

So, well, SNCC of course grew out of the Easter weekend conference of 1960 in Raleigh. Our Nashville group was a part of the major group that wanted that conference to happen and went to it. And we had people from all over the South for the most part, except perhaps for Mississippi in terms of students, a few adults, and it's out of that conference that SNCC was organized.
