The International Civil Rights Center and Museum

The sit-in protest at the lunch counter of the F.W. Woolworth on February 1, 1960 in Greensboro, NC contested the notion of racially segregated public spaces. This event was a pivotal moment in the Civil Rights Movement of the 20th Century and was one of many more actions to follow that led the way for court-ordered school desegregation a decade later. The International Civil Rights Center and Museum (ICRCM) now sits in the site of the historical lunch counter protest, and has transformed it from a landmark into a permanent educational institution known all over the world. We, LaHoma and Cindy, are honored to be reading and discussing our book about the desegregation of another public space, public schools, at the ICRCM where courageous people made a stand for justice more than half a century ago. Please join us at 7:00 pm for Real Stories, Real People, Authors' Meet and Greet in the ICRCM lobby.
