Lunchtime Series at the NC Museum of History

History à la Carte: Fifty Years Since the Sit-Ins.

In February 1960, four African American college freshmen in Greensboro ignited a sit-in movement protesting racial segregation.  Amelia Parker, Executive Director of the International Civil Rights Center and Museum, will discuss the movement’s early days and the museum that now occupies the historic F. W. Woolworth store where it all began.

Wednesday, Feb. 10, 12:10–1 p.m.  Bring your lunch; beverages provided.
