In the new book, Hands on the Freedom Plow, fifty-two women -- northern and southern, young and old, urban and rural, black, white, and Latina -- share their courageous personal stories of working for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) on the front lines of the Civil Rights Movement.
Betty Garman Robinson, one of the contributors to the book, is a community organizer in Baltimore. She and other contributors -- Judy Richardson, Dorothy Zellner, and Jean Smith Young -- talk about their experiences working for SNCC.
The Charm City Labor Chorus, a project of the Labor Heritage Foundation, perform several civil rights songs during the event.
