Inspired by student sit-ins during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) emerged as "the only national civil rights organization led by young people." This influential organization is the focus of One Person, One Vote: The Legacy of SNCC and the Fight for Voting Rights, a documentary website with much to offer for general audiences and students alike. This resource uses photographs, oral history interviews, audiovisual materials, and documents to "chronicle the historic struggles for voting rights that youth, converging with older community leaders, fought for and won." Here, readers will find numerous profiles using primary sources to explore how specific individuals and organizations contributed to the struggle for voting rights, an interactive timeline, a map featuring stories from specific places in Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia, a helpful list of digital primary sources, and a bibliography of published secondary sources. One Person, One Vote was the pilot project for SNCC Digital Gateway, featured in the 1-25-2017 Scout Report. SNCC Digital Gateway is a collaboration between the SNCC Legacy Project, Duke University Libraries, and the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University.
