 Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee - SNCC - FBI Files

STUDENT NONVIOLENT COORDINATING COMMITTEE (SNCC) FBI FILES

2,800 pages of files copied from FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C., and archived on CD-ROM, covering the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). The Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee was created in 1960 as a nonviolent civil rights movement primarily devoted to direct-action, voter-registration campaigns in the South. An investigation was opened in 1964 to establish the extent of communist infiltration in the SNCC. The group in 1966 under its new leader Stokely Carmichael, expressed impatience with nonviolent protests. Carmichael called for a "Black Power" campaign for blacks to achieve political and economic gains. In 1966 the SNCC was the first civil rights organization to oppose the Vietnam War. When Carmichael resigned in 1967, H. Rap Brown took over as leader. In 1969 the group changed its name to Student National Coordinating Committee, then soon dissolved.

Files contain reports covering a wide number of aspects of the SNCC including, group origins, leaders Stokely Carmichael and H. Rap Brown, reports from informants, activities with other groups including; Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), Nation of Islam, Student Christian Leadership Conference, Congress for Racial Equality Black Panther Party, and the NAACP.
