The Tree of Protest visualizes the organizing network of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). Drawing on archived digital sources on SNCC and utilizing digital mapping technologies, The Tree of Protest reveals the geopolitical reach and influence of SNCC’s network in the 1960s. The essays and archive maps expand our understanding of the critical work and impact of SNCC on American political life in the 1960s while also contributing to ongoing conversations about democracy, citizenship, and contemporary social movements. Indeed, visualizing the strategic geography of SNCC’s organizing demonstrates the ways the organization used fundraising, protest, and voter registration to re-educate Americans about the very meaning of democracy.
