The Greensboro Sit-Ins

Imagine an old 1960s diner. There's a long, L-shaped counter top and classic diner stools covered in vinyl dotting the counter space. Sounds like your typical diner, doesn't it? A piece of this diner now sits in The Smithsonian. Why? It's the location of the Greensboro Sit-Ins, a famous chain of sit-ins that began February 1, 1960, when Franklin McCain and three of his friends decided to challenge the establishment that would so gladly take their money in its store but refused to serve them at their food counter. Hear McCain's firsthand account on the day that changed their lives forever.
