Description:

The Sit-in Movement began on February 1, 1960 when four students from A&T College sat down at Woolworth’s lunch counter in Greensboro, North Carolina. Ezell Blair, Jr. (Jibreel Khazan), Franklin McCain, Joseph McNeil, and David Richmond became known as the A&T Four. Their action set in motion a national response. In Greensboro, a three year civil rights struggle ensued that involved students, faculty, local activists, national leaders, and the community. After many mass demonstrations and arrests, they were finally successful. Public facilities were desegregated.

This documentary attempts to answer many of the questions about that period and to provide some information on earlier activism at A&T College (now North Carolina Agricultural & Technical University).
