Here are some resources for stories of courageous activism recommended by Dr. Christena Cleveland of the Center for Justice and Renewal. “Hands on the Freedom Plow: Personal Accounts by Women in SNCC”. This book shares stories from women in the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. A second recommendation is “Lighting the Fires of Freedom: African American Women in the Civil Rights Movement” by Janet Dewart Bell. Through wide-ranging conversations with nine women, several now in their nineties with decades of untold stories, we hear what ignited and fueled their activism.
