He states that “SNCC’s founding was an important step in the transformation of a limited student movement.” In 1870 Benedict College was founded in Columbia South Carolina, being only one out of two Historically Black Colleges or Universities in Columbia, it made a name for itself as being founded on the belief that education should be used to benefit all people. Student activism at Benedict College was present as well as others throughout the Carolinas and its surrounding states. The sources used in my paper will be Clayborne Carson’s In Struggle SNCC and the Black Awakening of the 1960s, V.P. Franklin’s Patterns of Student Activism at Historically Black Universities in the United States and South Africa, Fredrick Richardson’s, A Power for Good in Society. These books and scholarly journal article help establish the background of the civil rights movement and help tell who participated in this movement.
1) Compare and contrast two different black political ideologies.

Although times have changed, this focal point remains and is a reason many Black students choose to attend HBCUs today. Other influences include these schools’ focus on A.A.-oriented curriculum, traditions that emphasize African-based culture, and overall promotion of racial unity among students. These institutions have exhibited a profound positive effect on their current and former students.
Finally; Malcolm-X’s role is significant in conjunction with advancing civil-rights, despite these controversies. Furthermore, as a legacy Malcolm-X as an individual gave African-Americans hope. Malcolm-X can be seen as significant by giving African-Americans a political maturity, Malcolm-X promoted ‘Afrocentricity and Black Identity as an intellectual idea’.

Collins does take issue however with such an exclusionary tone. To Collins, and the authors she looks to for guidance and affirmation, a more all-encompassing vision of Black feminism must be conceptualized. Collins assimilates numerous Black female writers and intellectuals into the fold of this more holistic definition. Collins settles on "a process of self- conscious struggle that empowers women and men to actualize a humanist vision of community." The core themes that are at the base of Collins development of Black feminist thought are addressed in the majority of the book.
Jefferson Funeral Home, which is the oldest African-American business in the state of Mississippi. I being a young reader found that to be an interesting fact. I like the book, because it is something that I would keep for children in the future to read.

One is when many people who considered themselves Black in that country join together and form an organization where they can fight for the equal rights that their white and Moreno counterparts have.
