Sit-In Counter

One year ago today, the International Civil Rights Museum in Greensboro, North Carolina opened its doors. Located in the old Woolworth building in downtown Greensboro, it is the site where four students from North Carolina A&T University began a historic sit-in at the lunch counter on Feb. 1, 1960 and helped ignite the Civil Rights Movement in this country. If you're in town, plan a visit to the museum.
