Junius Williams talked about his life and career, including joining the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) in the early 1960s and the fight for equal rights during the Civil Rights Movement. He recalled the racism he experienced throughout the country, being put in Jail, and the Civil Rights conference he organized at his university. This was part one of a two-part oral history.

This interview was part of an oral history project on the Civil Rights Movement of the mid-20th century initiated by Congress in 2009, conducted by the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, the Library of Congress, and the Southern Oral History Program at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. The interview was conducted on the Rutgers University campus in Newark, New Jersey, by Joseph Mosnier of the Southern Oral History Program at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. close
