Guest speakers, Jean Wiley and Cathy Cade, who have stories featured in the book, "Hands on the Freedom Plow," will be discussing their roles as women in the south during the Civil Rights Movement. Hands on the Freedom Plow not only explores the history of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), its very structure embodies the organization. The beloved community based itself on radical egalitarianism, mutual respect, and unconditional support for every person's unique gifts and contributions. Meetings lasted until everyone had their say, in the belief that every voice counted.The large number of contributors allows the same stories to be narrated from different perspectives. Sometimes accounts differed as to who did what, how actions were proposed or executed, or the ways in which the organization worked.
