The International Civil Rights Center & Museum preserves and showcases the legacy and significance of the Greensboro, North Carolina Woolworth sit-ins. Four young African American students at North Carolina A&T State University sat at a “whites only” counter inside the Woolworth restaurant on February 1, 1960. The nonviolent sit-in served as a major milestone of the civil rights movement and inspired sit-in demonstrations across the country.
