The Greensboro sit-in of 1960 will have an effect on the world forever. Four courageous college males conducted a sit-in on February 1st in a Woolworth restaurant against the injustices they faced based on their skin complexion. When they were denied service of food, they sat at the lunch counter for hours until the café closed. Day after day, the students would return with more protestors. This event led to 54 sit-ins throughout the South in 15 cities in 9 states by February 7th. On July 25, 1960, the Woolworth lunch counter was desegregated. Today, there are several museums made in honor of the non-violent protest that launched the Civil Rights movement.
