"Willie Ricks must rank as one of those unknown heroes who captured the mood of history. In calling for Black Power, he caught the essence of the spirit, moving Black people in the United States and around the world who were poor, Black, and without power."
Willie Ricks, (Mukasa), was a key leader of the Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). Mukasa built the student movement in Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and throughout the South, leading sit-ins, voter registration campaigns, and fearlessly organizing in the rural areas.
