Remembering Lawrence Guyot

To many of his peers, Lawrence Guyot was an "unsung hero of the Civil Rights movement." He died Friday at the age of 73. He was an original member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) and director of the 1964 Freedom Summer in Mississippi, enduring jail and violence to mobilize black voters. But Guyot was also deeply invested in local activism in Washington, DC. We explore his life and legacy.
