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.
Group singing provided solace for Freedom Riders facing the constant threat of violence. It was also an effective political tool. "Without singing, we would have lost our sense of solidarity," John Lewis says.
