USA – The Civil Rights Trail

USA. International Civil Rights Center & Museum, Greensboro, North Carolina. A reconstruction of the counter of the Woolworth shop, where the Greensboro Four started their sit-in protest to end segregation in North Carolina. On February 1, 1960, David Richmond, Franklin McCain, Ezell Blair Jr. (Jibreel Khazan) and Joe McNeil, four African American students from North Carolina A&T State University, staged a sit-in at Woolworth, a popular retail store that was known for refusing to serve African Americans at its lunch counter. Not long after their protest, sit-ins began occurring across the South and the students became known as the Greensboro Four.
