Greensboro Sit-Ins: Launch of a Civil Rights Movement

Greensboro Sit-Ins: Launch of a Civil Rights Movement

At 4:30 pm on this day in 1960, Ezell Blair Jr., Joseph McNeil, David Richmond, and Franklin McCain, all students at A&T University, sat down at a segregated lunch counter in a Greensboro Woolworth’s store, ordered coffee, and stayed in their seats, despite being refused service, until the store closed. 5 days later, over 500 students filled that store and others in downtown Greensboro. From there the sit-ins spread across the state and across the South, transforming the Civil Rights movement. Think about those four young men today as you drink your coffee. We owe them much.l, and Franklin McCain, all students at A&T University, sat down at a segregated lunch counter in a Greensboro Woolworth’s store, ordered coffee, and stayed in their seats, despite being refused service, until the store closed. 5 days later, over 500 students filled that store and others in downtown Greensboro.

    Thanks for the strategies presented. One thing I also believe is always that credit cards giving a 0% rate often lure consumers in with zero monthly interest, instant endorsement and easy on the net balance transfers, however beware of the top factor that can void your current 0% easy neighborhood annual percentage rate and also throw one out into the terrible house quickly.

  • Wow! Thank you! I continually wanted to write on my blog something like that. Can I include a part of your post to my blog?

    This design is incredible! You obviously know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
