First to Afghans, then Iraqis. Now the people of Iran?
On this day, Feb 1st 1960
The 'Greensboro Four', 4 African American college students, walked up to Woolworth's "whites only" lunch counter in Greensboro and staged a sit-in...Their sit-in inspired others all over the US and became one of the turning points in the civil rights movement..
PBS has some great information and a documentary
Here is another great site about the sit-ins...
