Background On February 1, 1960 in Greensboro, North Carolina, four African American townspeople were not being treated equal. They asked for service in an all white restaurant but the workers refused to give service.
Who & What Ezell A. Blair, Jr., Franklin E. McCain, Joseph A. McNeil, and David L. Richmond were the first four guys to start this sit-in. Their main goal was to end racial inequality. Some obstacles faced were police involvement, discrimination, and racism.
