Abstract 

This article describes the various means of persecution, specifically imprisonment, which civil rights activists must often undergo. The authors begin this article with an excerpt from a religious song about going to jail for just causes in order to do God's will. Then they discuss the frequency with which civil rights activists, specifically those from the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), are jailed and mistreated by police as they fight for equality. They focus on events in Danville, Virginia.
