Black History Month: Sit-in Commemoration

All Day

Event Details

On February 1, 1960, four young men took an important step toward ending segregation. They walked into a Greensboro, NC Woolworth’s Department Store, sat at the lunch counter and ordered coffee and doughnuts. They were refused service, but they continued to sit there until the store closed. Later known as the Greensboro Four, they initiated the first Sit-in of the Civil Rights Movement. People of all ages are encouraged to join us to commemorate this historical event.
