Chapters 4, 5, and 6 of this scrapbook focus on the events of February 3-5, 1960 - the third, fourth, and fifth days of sit-ins. Harris remarks on how the press coverage fueled growing interest in the sit-ins, which increasingly began to impact the store’s business. He outlines meetings with university presidents, local business managers, regional Woolworth’s representatives, and attorneys, which led to no resolve. Harris observes increasing tension but emphasizes the lack of "disturbances."
Also included are newspaper clippings regarding the sit-ins, including "Movement By Negroes Growing"; a partial article titled "Student Strength Rises in Protest At Lunch Counter"; "A. & T. College Students Seek Service At Midtown Lunch Counter" from the Feb. 6 The Future Outlook; and an editorial from the Feb. 5 Greensboro Daily News called "Leadership at the Five and Ten".
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.
