Chapter 1 focuses on Woolworth's business practices and race relations compared to the racial makeup of Greensboro. Included are photographs of the dining area and bakery of the Woolworth's taken in 1985; images of Elm Street showing the store exterior in the 1960s;
a July 1980 article by Al Farber of the Hamburger Square Post entitled "Food, Folks Are Tops At Woolworth's On Elm"; Jerry Bledsoe's December 1981 column on Boyd Morris, former owner of Mayfair Cafeteria, titled "At the End of The Line, A Giant Serving Of Love"; a chronology of Woolworth's clipped from the company's newsletter in 1979; sales figures from the leading Woolworth stores in 1958-1959, before the sit-ins, and after desegregation in July 1962 and 1963; and a partial diagram of the interior of Woolworth's with the site of the sit-ins on the first and second days marked.
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. This chapter also contains a 1985 Woolworth's lunch menu that was not digitized.
