The second day of a two-day symposium reflecting on the SNCC Digital Gateway Project, a collaboration between activists and the academy where those who made the history are central to telling the story. On Saturday, activists, community members, teachers, students, nonprofits, and scholars will explore how SNCC’s organizing can inform today’s struggles for self-determination, justice, and democracy. Contemporary and veteran activists will share their approach and strategies regarding electoral politics and power, grassroots organizing, art and culture in the Movement, controlling the public narrative, coalition building, addressing internal conflicts, and more. Ash-Lee Henderson, co-executive director of Highlander Research & Education Center and Phillip Agnew, co-founder of the Dream Defenders, will be a part of a day designed to build connections between activists of all ages and fuel the ongoing struggle. After the symposium, a closing reception for the SNCC Digital Gateway Project will be held at The Vault at Palace International (1104 Broad Street) from 7-9:30pm.
