The Northern Student Movement (NSM) was an American civil rights organization that drew inspiration from sit-ins and lunch counter protests led by students in the south.[2] NSM was founded at Yale University in 1961 by Peter J. Countryman, grew out of the work of a committee formed by the New England Student Christian Movement,[1] and was affiliated with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC).[2] Countryman began NSM's work by collecting books for a predominantly African-American college and raising funds for SNCC. He then turned to organizing tutoring programs for inner city youth in northeastern cities. By 1963, NSM was reported to be helping as many as 3,500 children using 2,200 student volunteers from 50 colleges and universities.[3] NSM also encouraged direct-action protests, sending volunteers to sit-ins in the South and organizing rent strikes in the North.[1][4][5] In the early 60's, NSM's work was divided into three areas which were each headed by an executive committee: "the campus, the community, and the south."[6]

Organizational History and Leadership

Originally headquartered in New Haven, Connecticut, NSM moved to New York City.[7] Countryman stepped down as NSM's executive director in 1963 and was replaced by William L. Strickland.[6]

Its initial convention, the Inter-Collegiate Conference on Northern Civil Rights, was held at Sarah Lawrence College in April 1962.[8]

Additional Resources

The records of the Northern Student Movement, including a complete run of its periodical, Freedom North, are on file with the Manuscripts, Archives and Rare Books Division of the New York Public Library.[6]

Oral History interviews with several NSM organizers are available through the Columbia Oral History Project.
