In the 1960s, blacks in the South experienced racial inequality because of their skin complexion. During this time period, the Civil Rights Movement was going on. On February 1, 1960 four college students impacted the world. When the four students wanted to purchase a meal, they weren’t banned because of their skin complexion. The students would come to the Woolworth Restaurant everyday to protest until July when the store became desegregated. The word about the sit-in in Greensboro spread around quickly, leading to 54 sit-ins throughout the South. Their courageous act of conducting a lunch counter sit-in in a Greensboro Woolworth restaurant inspired many across the southern United States. The Woolworth shop was open to everyone no matter his or her skin complexion, but the restaurant was for strictly Caucasian people. This sit-in was a result of Ezell Blair Jr., David Richmond, and Franklin McCain having a dream to have the same rights as Caucasians did. These four males became known as the ‘Greensboro Four.’ Hundreds, even thousands, of people would come each day to the Woolworth lunch counter to protest against these inequalities. By late July, the Greensboro Woolworth restaurant was desegregated due when three African American Woolworth’s employees were served at the counter.
