Episode Summary

EDIT
Ain't Scared of Your Jails - 1960-1961
AIRED:
From PBS - Beginning in 1960, young people on Black college campuses took a more active role in the civil rights movement's leadership and determined their own methods of promoting change. Further, the focus of Black protest changed from challenging specific laws to challenging the broad range of racial and economic inequities. The program links four related stories of the 1960-1961 period: the lunch counter sit-ins of 1960; the formation of SNCC (Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee) by students who led the sit-ins; the impact of the sit-ins on the Kennedy-Nixon presidential campaign; and the freedom rides of 1961.moreless
