Summary:
SNCC 50th Anniversary Conference Volume 29 - Luncheon Keynote: U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, "The Nation's in Your Debt" FEATURED SPEAKER: U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. According to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, the first Black Attorney General of the United States, There is a "direct line" from the 1960 lunch counter sit-in that took place in Greensboro, North Carolina to the election of President Barack Obama in 2008. Both Holder and Mr. Obama are "beneficiaries" of SNCC's work. The Attorney General acknowledges that the United States still suffers from racial inequality in everything from unemployment rates to the length of prison terms. "There is still work to be done." And while the Justice Department "will be about that work," Holder says, to do what needs to be done "will take more than the election of the first African-American president and the appointment of the first African-American Attorney General."
