Rev Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are scheduled to speak at North Carolina A&T Today on the topic of 21st-century activism and protest… Today’s visit is to recognizing the 50th anniversary of the 1960 sit-in at F.W. Woolworth… (Here’s a little History lesson) On February 1, 1960 4-black students from A&T sat down at a segregated lunch counter and demanded service. The protest lasted until the counter was desegregated (6 months later)… The three surviving members from the Greensboro protests are expected to attend.
