SNCC Founding April 8, 1960, Ella Baker’s Mind Was Quite Divine

Today, I celebrate the founding of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee on April 8, 1960. This band of black brothers and sisters courageously faced the hellhole of America's Southland with an energy and desire that was unbelievable. Although, these majestic young black folks may have have fear inside they never let that fear dissuade them from the goal of assisting the least of our communities in the South from gaining a sense of citizenship and pride. They faced up, manned up, and sent Jim and Jane Crow scurrying into the deepest, darkest recesses hiding from the electricity of hope these warriors exhibited. It was certainly bigger than a hamburger.
