Greensboro Celebrates Opening of New International Civil Rights Museum

The big news in Greensboro this week was of course the opening of the City’s new International Civil Rights Museum, located in the Woolworth’s Department Store where the historic sit-ins movement began in 1960.  Check out the extensive coverage from the News and Record

You may also want to have a look at the Museum’s website.

Greensboro Public Library has a page dedicated to the sit-ins here, and our index to newspaper articles on the sit-ins will soon include links to digital versions of articles which appeared in the Greensboro Daily News and the Greensboro Record between February and July, 1960.
