Hogan provides insights into activism, political organization, and personal transformation that not only deepen our understanding of the civil rights movement but offer lessons for all who seek to advance the grand vision SNCC embodied.--The Journal of American History
It is not an exaggeration to say that SNCC was the heart and soul of the southern movement against racial segregation. Wesley Hogan, in this carefully researched examination of the SNCC experience, draws from it both wisdom and inspiration.--

A very good book. . . . May be profitably read by anyone dreaming of a better America.--Arkansas Historical Quarterly
Breaking new ground, Hogan focuses the reader's attention to the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) and its role in the modern civil rights movement. . . . Drawing on existing research, original interviews, and previously untapped archives, [Hogan's] work looks at what happened inside the movement itself.--The Courier
Hogan's impressive Many Minds, One Heart. . . . does a fine job of analyzing how SNCC combated racism in some of the worst parts of the nation and, for a brief moment at least, allowed sharecroppers, students, and other ordinary folk--both black and white--to believe that a deeper, richer, more democratic culture was possible in America. . . . Many Minds, One Heart offers a poignant, detailed examination of how SNCC's efforts in the South gave Americans a chance to see ordinary citizens transforming their communities on an unprecedented scale.--Washington Post
Many Minds, One Heart is a sincerely rendered narrative history reminder: realizing democracy is often a glorious, necessary mess, but somebody has to do it. In the end, we are all the better for the process and its outcome, even when we calculate the costs. In her detailed chronicle of SNCC, Hogan illustrates this 'big truth' with considerable clarity and focus.--Chana Kai Lee, author of For Freedom's Sake: The Life of Fannie Lou Hamer
Many Minds, One Heart is itself a work of many minds--a complex, bold, stereotype-breaking analysis--and one heart--a full-throated call for a more deeply democratic public life. This is a timely and crucial act of scholarship and citizenship.--Timothy B. Tyson, Duke University
Wesley Hogan has written a deep and comprehensive history of SNCC that will hopefully spark the conversation of how we learn from our elders and continue to evolve the lessons learned then for those who fight for freedom today.--Adrienne Maree Brown, executive director, The Ruckus Society
