Summary
"This is a cautionary tale. It centers on the Southern Negro Youth Congress (SNYC), a militant, interracial youth movement that thrived against all odds between 1937 and 1949 in the Jim Crow South. Its rise and fall--and the collective amnesia that followed--offers a timely warning about how history is made and unmade, and how that shapes our shared narrative. While SNYC was based in Birmingham, AL, South Carolina activists played a key role in SNYC's unlikely success. Early on, Columbia activist Modjeska Monteith Simkins served on its board, and was instrumental in bringing SNYC's 7th annual conference to Columbia in October 1946.... It was an unprecedented gathering, yet one that has largely been forgotten. Only recently has scholarship on the radical human rights movement in the 1930s and '40s emerged, enriching our understanding of the people who drove it and the critical ground they laid for those who came later. SNYC is far from the only chapter of history to be whitewashed, distorted, or erased altogether. This booklet offers a few South Carolina examples: the first Memorial Day, celebrated in war-ruined Charleston after Confederates evacuated the city in 1865; the radically democratic experiment that was Reconstruction; the widespread practice of lynchings after Reconstruction's end; and the conspiracy of silence that followed the 1934 killings of seven striking textile workers in Honea Path.... This volume is not a comprehensive telling of South Carolina's forgotten resisters....This is simply a reminder that what we've been taught has largely been dominated by money, war, and the experiences of white men of privilege...."--Page [3]
