Joseph A McNeil, Franklin E McCain, David L Richmond and Ezell A. Blair Jr. were four African American college students who attended Agricultural and Technical College of North Carolina. These freshmen students spent many evenings together talking about racial injustices in America. Sometime in January 1960, McNeil suggested to do the sit-in while talking to the group. On February 1st, the students walked into the Woolworth restaurant in Greensboro, North Carolina and sat at a ‘white only’ lunch counter, and asked to be served. When they were not served food because of their skin complexion, the four African American students began a silent protest. The next day and the day after, the students returned to the restaurant. The second day, about sixteen more A&T students joined the sit-in. That Friday three Caucasian males were charged for intimidation; one of the three for setting a black man’s coat on fire. By the end of July, the Greensboro Woolworth Restaurant in North Carolina was desegregated.
