James Farmer[edit]

The page as written erroneously implies that James Farmer ultimately opposed continuing the freedom rides onward to Jackson after the violence at Birmingham. Farmer may have been hesitant, but in the event he joined the Freedom Riders himself and was imprisoned with many others in Jackson. --Bob Wechsler 18:09, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

Fixed. Thanks for the note. Kaldari (talk) 03:59, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

Missing Sources[edit]

Working on compiling missing sources. Please give a few days. Do not delete. Amedea (talk) 20:16, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

The paragraph quoted below starts with a third-person POV, then unexpectedly shifts to the first-person. Is the statement that begins with the word "Globally" and ends with the word "globe" a quote? Is surely sounds like one. I can't find the source; can anyone? I'm also not sure how to blockquote a paragraph on the Talk page, so I'm sorry if I've done it incorrectly.
Nash also fights for the rights of women. She believes that people need to become aware of the problems and issues that women face around the world. Globally, I think gender discrimination affects women just about everywhere. I had the good fortune to travel to Vietnam during the Vietnam War and I was really inspired by the feminism of the North Vietnamese women. They took feminism very seriously. They were highly organized. Every town and city we went to we were introduced to the civil liberties union. The women there felt that if Americans understood how and why the war was being fought, Americans would be against it—and time showed they were correct. They made it very clear to me that they had met and dealt with discrimination on the other side of the globe.
Also, don't get me started on the footnote and sourcing issues with this page. I have no idea how to fix them.Chris314 (talk) 00:49, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

Needs cleanup[edit]

NPOV problems. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:38, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

It really has problems. Wikipedia goes on and on about how everything is supposed to be objective in their articles. Well, we all know that Nash was an extraordinary person. You can't read her history without coming to that conclusion. But this article says, "Diane Nash is an extraordinary woman who played a pivotal role in gaining social justice for many people nationwide". This isn't objective it is subjective and whether it's true or not the reader should come to their own conclusions about it. This article reads much like a fan sheet and as such it has problems. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:28, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

Jet magazine[edit]

Nash was featured in the June 29, 1961 issue of Jet magazine, appearing on the cover. Kaldari (talk) 05:39, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

An important piece of information seems missing here...[edit]

Maybe I missed it, but as far as I can tell, this article doesn't tell me whether she was white or black herself. For a person involved in the 1960s Civil Rights movement, I think that's pretty important and relevant information. Robofish (talk) 19:28, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

I think the article is too "talky"[edit]

I think the tone and content of the article about Diane Nash is too informal, too "talky". It reads as if it were written by an enthusiastic young fan of hers. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:19, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
