The Student Voice [4 Issues, 1963-1965]
Atlanta: Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, 1963-5. First Edition. Pamphlet. SNCC's nationally-distributed, professionally-printed monthly (later weekly) newspaper, which offered news of the African-American civil rights movement throughout the South, serving as a national recruiting and fundraising tool particularly on American campuses. Though not credited, the Voice was edited by a young Julian Bond, who had left Morehouse College in the Spring of 1961 to work full-time for SNCC, which he had helped to found a year earlier. The current issues provide graphic reportage of events in Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia and the rest of the southern U.S., providing first-person coverage of some of the bloodiest confrontations of the early days of the Civil Rights movement. Despite comparatively mainstream distribution, The Student Voice (like all else from SNCC's early period) is notably uncommon in commerce and far from abundant institutionally, with a number of major North American research libraries appearing to have no holdings at all as of August 2017. This small but representative sampling, though far from comprehensive, nonetheless provides excellent insight to the work of SNCC and the Civil Rights movement generally. Four quarto issues (11" x 8-1/2"). Each issue 4pp (bifolium), printed offset with photographic illustrations. Minimal wear or evidence of use; Near Fine. Includes Vol. 3 no. 1 (April 1962); Vol. 5, nos. 1 (Jan 14, 1964); 6 (Feb 18, 1964); and 8 (Mar 3, 1964).
