Since the Greensboro sit-ins on Feb. 1, 1960, the News & Record has published dozens of stories about what brought the four N.C. A&T freshmen together in an attempt to integrate F.W. Woolworth’s lunch counter.
The paper has chronicled their fears as they walked East Market Street to the store where they sat without service the first day and many other days. Readers have seen the stories about the way the sit-ins spread throughout the South, changing race relations across the country. Now, with this website, you can hear the participants tell the stories themselves.
