Lunch Sit-Ins

November 22, 2011

On February 1st 1960, the first lunch-counter sit-in occurred (Richard Layman, 1994). This was a successful nonviolent movement to confront racism (Richard Layman, 1994). It all started when four college students from North Carolina A&T University sat a whites only counter and would not leave until they were served (Richard Layman, 1994). These sit-ins started to pop up all over the country and “resulted in the formation of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee” (Richard Layman, 1994).
