The Student Leader
A student at Fisk University in Nashville, Diane Nash became the leader of the Nashville Student Movement. Fellow activists John Lewis, Ernest "Rip" Patton, Jr., Rev. James M. Lawson, Jr., and Julian Bond describe her commitment to nonviolence.
In the early 1960s, activists impatient for change turned to a new strategy: non-violent direct action.
