The Greensboro Lunch Counter: What an Artifact Can Tell Us About the Civil Rights Movement

On February 1, 1960, four young Black men sat down at a Woolworth’s lunch counter in Greensboro, North Carolina, and staged a nonviolent protest against segregation. At that time, most lunch counters in the South did not serve Black people. Soon, thousands of students were staging sit-ins across the South. In just six months, the Greensboro Woolworth's lunch counter was integrated. How did it become a symbol of civil rights? Find out the answer to this question and more about what an artifact can tell us about history.

School Library Journal - Suzanne Costner, Fairview Elementary School, Maryville, TN

"This series offers a unique way to approach historical events that will appeal to history buffs. Things as different as a brass inkstand and a lowly stump serve as reminders of major events when their stories are told. . . .Each title gives the background of the individuals involved and the events, as well as describing the part each object played. Sidebars address related topics such as the way female, Indigenous, and Black persons were affected by events." - School Library Journal
