Diane Nash was leader of the student movement in Nashville, helped to found the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, organized and led the Freedom Rides in 1961, and was a key figure in the Birmingham campaign in 1963 and Selma in 1965-work for which she received the Southern Christian Leadership Cconference's Rosa Parks Award for Leadership. Dr. King called her the "driving spirit in the nonviolent assault on segregation at lunch counters."

St. Andrew's Levinson History Lecture was endowed by David N. Levinson '53 P'05 and his family to provide an annual lecture in history, politics, economics, or related social science fields.
