Four black college students in North Carolina sat at the Woolworth's lunch counter to receive service and the diner refused to serve them so they stayed all night.

Did you hear about the Greensboro sit-in
The four students returned the next day with more college students. The original four's names were: Ezell Blair Jr., David Richmond, Franklin McCain and Joseph McNeil.
July 28th. 1960
Heavy television coverage. Although most of these sit-ins were successful there were struggles with white people pouring food and drinks on black people so they would get up even though they refused. Some were also arrested.
300 Students have come back today to protest at the diner.
People all over started to talk about the different sit-ins going around south.
The movement is spreading so fast I tell you.
Dining facilities across the south were being integrated. All because these four students decided to stand up for what they believed. Equality. There was also a monument made on the first sit-in moment founded in Raleigh North Carolina April 1960
