Description
Summary:On February 1, 1960, Franklin McCain, Joseph McNeil, Ezell Blair Jr. and David Richmond or, as they would later become known as, the Greensboro Four sat at a whites-only lunch counter at the Woolworth Store in Greensboro, NC. In the days after Feb. 1, they would be joined by other students at the Woolworth counter and at the Kress 5 & 10 lunch counter a half-block away. Their protests inspired black people to do the same at Formica-topped dime-store counters in other cities. The movement they started led to the integration of the Woolworth and the Kress chains, landmarks on every main street in the South.
