Storyboard Text

  • The Lunch Counter Sit-ins were non-violent protests in Greensboro, North Carolina.
  • Four black students from a local college sat down at a restaraunt bar.  The restaurant's policy was to not serve blacks there, so the restaurant called the police.  However, the police could not arrest them, as they they didn't provoke any trouble.  The students stayed there until the restaurant closed, then came back the next day with more students.
  • This movement was successful, and gained a lot of popularity.  Soon, 300 students joined.  A month later, it had spread to 13 states and 55 cities.  Eventually, the movement finished, and restaurants were then integrated.
