Black History

Greensboro Sit-ins

                     The original four
 
                  

    The sit-ins began in 1960. People in Greensboro began changing history. People would march, protest, picket, go to jail, get out of jail, and start all over. This meant to many black people that segregation could be over come. On February 1, 1960 the "Greensboro Four" sat at a "white-only" lunch counter. After that day they continued to go to the Woolworth counter and the Kress 5 & 10 along with other black students. Because of these four boys, Franklin McCain, Joseph McNeil, Ezell Blair Jr., and David Richmond (followed by 100 other sit-in demostrators) the Woolworth counter as well as the Kress 5 & 10 were insegregated making a mark in the civil rights movement.
