Description:

This section of Scrapbook 1 includes the foreword, acknowledgments, and a chronology of the sit-ins at that serves as a table of contents for the rest of the scrapbook. An unidentified news clipping depicting the unveiling of a historic marker commemorating the sit-ins provides a frontispiece to the scrapbook.

Scrapbook 1 is part of a set of scrapbooks Harris compiled during the 1980s which record his perspective on the sit-ins though his own writings, news clippings, photographs, and other ephemera. This scrapbook is organized like a book.
