Chapter 3 of this scrapbook focuses on the events of February 2, 1960, the second day of sit-ins, when student demonstrators occupied all twenty-seven seats at Woolworth's. Harris claims that normal lunch counter business was not disrupted and that the press took photographs without his permission. Included in this section is the Greensboro Record article from February 2, 1960, entitled "A&T Students Launch 'Sit Down' Demand For Service at Downtown Lunch Counter' which includes a well-known photo of four students at the lunch counter. Also included is a February 6, 1960, article "White Men Arrested at Sitdown" and a Greensboro News & Record article from 1985, "Daring act by four teenagers tumbles racial barriers" by Jim Schlosser.
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.
