Sat. Feb 1st marks 60 year anniversary of the start of the student sit-in movement, when 4 students from NCA&T University staged a sit-in at a segregated Woolworth’s lunch counter in Greensboro, NC. Students repeated the tactic in many cities, eventually forcing desegregation. pic.twitter.com/9rm3cIPz9V

If you think the youth of today don’t care about the civil rights trailblazers of the past, you are wrong.
Look at this group of young adults that marched to the Woolworths in Greensboro, North Carolina.
They are honoring the 60th anniversary of the Greensboro Four sit-in. pic.twitter.com/JZK1K8phqz
