abstract
SNCC 50th Anniversary Conference Volume 19 - Depictions of the Movement in Popular Culture FEATURED SPEAKERS: Jennifer Lawson Gittens (Tuskegee, Alabama Student Activist), Judy Richardson (SNCC National Office Atlanta), Danny Lyon (SNCC Staff Photographer), Charlie Cobb (SNCC Field Secretary), Chuck Neblett (SNCC Freedom Singer), Maria Varela (SNCC Field Secretary), Phil Alden Robinson (Film Director). Over the years, the popular media has had a troubled relationship with organizations like SNCC. Hollywood film director Phil Alden Robinson maintains that a big challenge to producing freedom movement films for theatrical distribution is the assumption that the films won't sell overseas. The entertainment values that drive the news limit the depiction of day-to-day grassroots organizing to dramatic protests. However, "media" is no longer defined as exclusively Hollywood, network television or mainstream print media. "Young people especially", says photographer Maria Varela, "are not just cultural consumers but culture-makers."
