Hands on the Freedom Plow: Personal Accounts by Women in SNCC has just been released. As the editors write in the introduction, "Though the voices are different, they all tell the same story--of women bursting out of constraints, leaving school, leaving their hometowns, meeting new people, talking into the night, laughing, going to jail, being afraid, teaching in Freedom Schools, working in the field, dancing at the Elks Hall, working the WATS line to relay horror story after horror story, telling the press, telling the story, telling the word. And making a difference in this world."

"This amazing book rethreads the needle of memory with a stronger cord woven of the testimonies of sisters who never gave up or in." -- Darlene Clark Hine, coauthor of The African American Odyssey

"Many stories have been told about the struggle for civil rights, but not like this. Hands on the Freedom Plow provides an inside view into the lives of 52 members of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, or SNCC." -- Kirkus Reviews

Edited by Faith S. Holsaert, Martha Prescod Norman Noonan, Judy Richardson, Betty Garman Robinson, Jean Smith Young, and Dorothy M. Zellner
