Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee

Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), U.S. civil rights organization in the 1960s. It originally consisted of both black and white college students who demonstrated to end segregation in the South. In 1966 Stokely Carmichael became the leader of SNCC. Carmichael, frustrated with the slow progress that SNCC's nonviolent approach was having, began his Black Power campaign and rejected most of SNCC's white support.
