Summary:SNCC 50th Anniversary Conference Volume 11 - Alabama: "Turning to Ourselves" FEATURED SPEAKERS: Ruby Sales (SNCC Field Secretary), Gloria House (SNCC Field Secretary), Willie Ricks (SNCC Field Secretary), Annie Pearl Avery (SNCC Field Secretary), Hasan Kwame Jeffries (Professor, The Ohio State University, Author, Bloody Lowndes). Black power as articulated by SNCC emerged directly from the work of its field organizers; and Lowndes County, Alabama, where SNCC consciously organized an independent Black political party in 1966, played an especially important role. Black power, the panel shows, is more than a slogan shouted out by Stokely Carmichael in 1966; Black people in communities across the south had been struggling for empowerment since the end of the Civil War. Black power also means more than simply electing Blacks to public office. SNCC's success in Lowndes County-one of its least-known achievements-is discussed.
