Support Southern Students: SNCC pins


Founded in April 1960 in Raleigh, NC, the Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) helped to bring student activists together and to stimulate their efforts at fighting segregation. SNCC was instrumental in staging sit-ins across the South in 1960. These lapel pins were one way to show support for the students' efforts.
