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.
