Methods: Essays / Arguments

Sources: Archives

The infrastructure of the SNCC Network Dashboard is informed by digitally available archive documents from the SNCC Digital Gateway at Duke University, the Civil Rights Movement Veterans archive at Tougaloo College, and the Freedom Summer Digital Collection at the Wisconsin Historical Society. In addition, additional archive material was drawn from and digital university newspaper archives. The primary search terms were: “Friends of SNCC” and “Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee.”  Future archival work will digitize available institutional repositories on Friends of SNCC Chapters and post-summer protest.1.
