Summary, etc.:
"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, many restaurants in the South did not serve black people. Soon, thousands of students were staging sit-ins in 55 states, and within six months, the lunch counter at which they'd first protested was integrated. How did a lunch counter become a symbol of civil rights? Readers will find out the answer to this question and what an artifact can tell us about U.S. civil rights history"-- Provided by publisher.
