Brookens Library Celebrates Black History Month

Today is the 50th anniversary of the sit-in by the “Greensboro Four” at a Woolworth’s lunch counter in Greensboro, NC. The six-month sit-in helped to end segregation. Hear about it today on NPR and read about it in these books owned by the Brookens Library:

Wolfe, Miles. Lunch at the five and ten, the Greensboro sit-ins.

Davidson, Osha Gray. The best of enemies: race and redemption in the New South.

Moran, William E. Between history and hope: some centennial reflections.
