1960S BLACK STUDENT MOVEMENT: SNCC – 'THE SIT-IN'

“In the sixties one of the main objectives of the black student movement was to breakdown barriers to African Americans achieving economic, political, and social parity in American society. When these barriers were temporarily altered, many African Americans thought the  “collective” struggle was over and concentrated on individual success. African Americans need to understand that individual success for African Americans (who are an oppressed nationality) is interrelated to group success because a chain is only as strong as its weakest link.” Muhammad Ahmad (Max Stanford)
