 Hands on the Freedom Plow,
fty-two women—northern and southern,young and old, urban and rural, black, white, and Latina—share their cou-rageous personal stories o working or the Student Nonviolent Coordinat-ing Committee (SNCC) on the ront lines o the Civil Rights Movement.The testimonies gathered here present a sweeping personal history o SNCC: early sit-ins, voter registration campaigns, and Freedom Rides; the1963 March on Washington, the Mississippi Freedom Summer, and theMovements in Alabama and Maryland; and Black Power and antiwar ac-tivism. Since the women spent time in the Deep South, many also describerisking their lives through beatings and arrests and witnessing unspeakableviolence. These intense stories depict women, many very young, dealingwith extreme ear and fnding the remarkable strength to survive.The women in SNCC acquired new skills, experienced personal growth,sustained one another, and even had un in the midst o serious struggle.Readers are privy to their analyses o the Movement—its tactics, strate-gies, and underlying philosophies. The contributors revisit central debateso the struggle including the role o nonviolence and sel-deense, the roleo white people in a black-led movement, and the role o women withinthe Movement and the society at large.Each story reveals how the struggle or social change was ormed, sup-ported, and maintained by the women who kept their “hands on thereedom plow.
