After the incident, him and his friends walking downtown on their way home October 5, 1959
I agree whats happening is not cool we should do a protest.
Why should we keep having to do this and follow their rules.
We need to do this to fight for our freedom your always the one that wants to be equal to the white man. That's your dream we need to do this.
I don't know this could be dangerous we could get killed.
No matter what happens this needs to happen we need our rights and we need them now is everyone in
Alright fine I'm in

We planned this out very carefully and decided to do a sit-in. We got a local white businessman, Ralph Jones, to help us out we have don't tests and have even got ourselves beat up so we are ready for everything. We decided to go to Woolworth downtown, sit at the counter, and refuse to lose our seats.
