Born on October 31, 1937, in Victoria, Texas, Sandra Cason Hayden was exposed to student racial politics when she entered the University of Texas as a junior in 1957. Hayden became involved with the Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA), the United States National Student Association (NSA), and the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). In Atlanta, Georgia, she worked on race relations for the YWCA and helped organize the Students for a Democratic Society. In August 1960, Hayden spoke at the NSA Convention held in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This chapter shows Hayden’s speech, in which she made the case for supporting the student sit-in movement.
