An Embittered SNCC
Adopts Black Power

AP News Analysis
ATLANTA-In six years of ex-
istence the Student Nonviolent Co-
ordinating Committee has changed
from idealistic to bitter, from en-
thusiastic to belligerent, but it has
remained always embattled.
The opposition has changed,
from rural sheriffs to congress-
men and metropolitan mayors; the
memiership has changed and the
focus has moved, 'but contention
still follows SNCC like a swarm of
hornets with its national chair-
man facing riot charges and its
publicity director having quit.
Inciting to Riot
Stokely Carmichael, 25, West
Indies-born head of SNCC was
jailed here Thursday night on
charges of disturbing the peace
and inciting to riot, the aftermath

strong idealism. They are very
idealistic about democracy."
Voter registration was an early
concern and working in remote
areas of the South, many SNCC
workers encountered brutality
which fostered frustration and in-
creasing bitterness.
From an idealistic concern for
democracy, a concern for politics
naturally grew, with the climactic
series of demonstrations in Bir-
mingham, Ala., in 1963, SNCC
leaders turned more and more to
the idea of revamping democratic
In 1964, the SNCC-fostered Free-
dom Democratic party emerged in
Mississippi; so did a protest
against drafting Negroes to serve
in Viet Nam.
In 1965, Carmichael and other
SNCC workers organizes the all-
Negro Black Panther party in
Lowndes County, Ala.
Black Power
The inherent separatism in the
move brought to light another
element in the metamorphosis of
SNCC - which recently emerged
full grown as the concept of
"black power."
The begging posture of the ear-
ly demonstrations did not sit well
with the young militants. who were
proud as well as impatient. Fur-
thermore, integrated lunch coun-
ters were not of much use to the
frustrated stratum with which
SNCC concerned itself; the poor-
est, the least educated, the least
ambitious to rise.
"I never say anything bad about
SNCC,". confided an official of
the Southern Christian Leadership
Conference long after a rift with
the organization it helped start
had become apparent. "They get
right down there with the lowest,
where often ;times we haven't
SCLC, started and headed by
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., is
totally committed to nonviolence
and integration. It tried to heal
the split and to present the ap-
pearance of a united front. Singer
Harry Belafonte mediated discus-
sions between the two groups in
the spring of 1965-confirming
that the cleavage was there.
But last May 14 Lewis was ousted
and replaced by Carmichael.
Lewis later quit, saying. "I am not
prepared to give up my commit-
ment to nonviolence."
The multigroup march through
Mississippi after the shooting of
James Meredith proved once again
to be a coalition of convenience,
not conviction, and it was there
the cry, "black power" emerged
at full volume.
