Celebrating Black History Month

Celebrating Black History Month

February, 1960

“On February 1, 1960, four young African-American men, freshmen at the Agricultural and Technical College of North Carolina, entered the Greensboro Woolworth’s and sat down on stools that had, until that moment, been occupied exclusively by white customers. The four—Franklin McCain, Ezell Blair Jr., Joseph McNeil and David Richmond—asked to be served, and were refused. But they did not get up and leave. Indeed, they launched a protest that lasted six months and helped change America.”

In honor of Black History Month, I plan to post wonderful memories, facts and historical accounts related to Black History.
