At SNCC's 1960 founding conference, Ella Baker encouraged the students to recognize that their struggle was "bigger than a hamburger" in reference to the original narrow goals of desegregating lunch counters. As the studentsí consciousness deepened, SNCC took on broader issues of civil liberties, red baiting, the Vietnam War, women's issues, and in a large way embraced struggles for liberation and empowerment around the world. The panel begins with a discussion on the evolution of SNCCís organizing goals and concludes with a conversation on the need to stay engaged in contemporary political struggles.
