Sit ins Created By isaac Nesburg
During the 1960’s as protesting became bigger and bigger throughout the south, one of the first sit in took place in Greensboro, North Carolina.
This event had many goals. For starters, the main goal of the sit ins was to gain equal respect for all African Americans. To do so African Americans began to use a non-violent tactic introduced by MLK. The tactic was that while the white people who yelled, screamed, kicked, and punched at us we would sit peacefully in our chair and do nothing. We would eventually get on the news and the people of America will see truly how the African American community is being treated.
They overcame these obstacles by always reminding themselves about their goals in all of their effort. They kept reminding themselves that if the gave up now, they would never see the change they all dreamed of. They knew it would be a rough road for them but the outcome some day in the end would be worth it all.
Impacts and lasting effects
This event impacted today in many ways. For starters, the sit-ins of the 1960’s helped to lead to eventually civil rights for african americans. If african americans never got the civil rights they worked for the world would be a very different place today.
