January 6, 1938 – March 29, 2020
SNCC Freedom Singer Marshall Jones passed away in New York at age 82. A native of Tennessee and a music major at the University of Tennessee, Marshall joined SNCC in 1963 and traveled with the Freedom Singers to raise money for SNCC. His mellow tenor will be sorely missed. Our condolences to his wife Alice and his children.
