In "Education of a Harvard Guy", Perdew recounts how he decided to leave Harvard and risk everything to join the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC snick) in the struggle for human rights in southwest Georgia, mainly Albany and Americus. The play describes how he Donald Harris, Ralph Allen and Zev Aelony,three-month stay in jail as the "Americus Four", charged with insurrection and facing the death penalty and other confrontations with the defenders of racial oppression.
As a focal point for student activism in the 1960s, the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC, popularly called Snick) spearheaded major initiatives in the civil rights movement. At the forefront of integration efforts, SNCC volunteers gained early recognition for their lunch counter sit-ins at whites-only businesses, and later for their participation in historic demonstrations that helped pave the way for the passage of landmark federal civil rights legislation in 1964 and 1965. SNCC made significant gains in voter registration for blacks in the South, where it also ran schools and health clinics.
