Jane Stembridge, the daughter of a white Baptist preacher, was raised in Georgia and was studying in New York at Union Theological Seminary when the sit-ins began in Greensboro, North Carolina. She drove down immediately and soon after was offered a secretarial position in the Atlanta office of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). She became close friends with Bob Moses and her suggestion that Moses move over to the new student organization sharing space in the SCLC office marked the beginning of SNCC’s presence in the South. Stembridge went on to write poetry about her experience in SNCC, including a collection called I Play Flute.
