Greensboro Lunch Counter
In 1960, four African American students protested Jim Crow laws at this original section of the F.W. Woolworth lunch counter―the era’s first passive sit-in. Actors lead visitors through a re-creation of 1960s training for non-violent protests, including how to behave, what to say or not say, and how to react if you’re harassed. EXTRA TIP: Next month, the International Civil Rights Center & Museum will open in Greensboro, North Carolina, on the original Woolworth site.
