V. Sitting Down to Stand Up for Rights--The Greensboro Sit-In
On February 1, 1960 four African American students went into a Woolworth in Greensboro, North Carolina, and staged a sit-in at the lunch counter. They sat in the whites only section of the lunch counter and ordered coffee--refusing to move. The idea spread, and with each day that passed, more students began to take part in similar protests for equal rights. For more information about the Greensboro sit-in, visit the links below.
