Duke SNCC Legacy Project

Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) begins veterans to campus for extended periods to work alongside students, faculty, and archivists in establishing a new archive on the SNCC organizing efforts that led to the Voting Rights Act.


The SNCC Legacy Project Digital Movement Platform tells its history and aims to motivate people toward the future through bridging generations and preserving its legacy and history. The hope is to create a living freedom archive that can be publicly accessible through the web and include K–12 outreach.


  • Archiving SNCC documents digitally to make them easily available for use

  • Assisting in the development of  media by SNCC veterans with the idea of having the stories and interpretation of SNCC’s work told by its veterans

  • Documented transcripts of SNCC visiting professors and scholars who would in formal and informal ways interact with young people on campuses
