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. Mr. Williams talked about his move to Newark, New Jersey in the 1970s, his work to lift African Americans out of poverty, and the shift from non-violent resistance to the black power movement. This was part two 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
