The assessment provides an idea of how prepared you are now for the History E.O.C. in May. See Mr. Saldivar for more details.
Black History Month
The Greensboro Sit-Ins were the first prominent non-violent sit-in protests of the civil rights movement and lasted from February 1 to July 25, 1960. The protests led to the Woolworth Department Store chain ending its policy of racial segregation in its stores. The protest began when McNeil, McCain, Blair and Richmond, African American students at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University in Greensboro, sat down at a lunch counter inside Woolworth and politely asked for service.
Their request was refused, and they were asked to leave. In response, they chose to remain in their seats. This passive resistance and peaceful sit-down protest helped ignite a youth-led movement to challenge racial inequality throughout the South.
