I just learned that Matt Jones, one of the original SNCC Freedom Singers, passed away last night (29 March 2011) in New York City. Matt's health had been deteriorating since last summer, so this comes as no surprise, but it is still very sad news.

Rest in peace, beloved comrade.

One small correction: Matt Jones joined the SNCC Freedom Singers in 1963, about a year after the group was formed. He was, therefore, not one of the original members. For the record, the original SNCC Freedom Singers were Cordell Reagon, Bernice Johnson (later Bernice Johnson Reagon), Charles Neblett, and Rutha Mae Harris.
