Sit-In Movement 60th Anniversary

issuesad1

greenboro-first-dayOn a cold February Afternoon in 1960 in Greensboro North Carolina 4 courageous College Students Stood Up so We Can sit down and eat at Establishments around the United States. They did not do it for money, fame or recognition they did it because it was the Right Thing To Do.

On January 31, 2020 and February 1, 2020

We will be celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Sit In at Woolworth. 

Listen to these historic videos.
