Chapters 10, 11, and 12 of this scrapbook focus on events taking place from the end of February through the summer of 1960, including the continued sit-ins and Harris' eventual decision to desegregate Woolworth. Harris describes his efforts to deter the protesters and the negative effect of continued sit-ins on the store, as well as a meeting he held with Woolworth's African American employees shortly after the sit-ins began. He describes a meeting with the Human Relations Committee and takes issue with press coverage which focused blame only on Woolworth and Kress. Harris also reasserts his wish that a desegregation law had been passed that applied to all stores and decries the lack of action from city officials, but ends the section with a discussion of his decision to desegregate.
Included in this section is a Greensboro Daily News article by Julian Morrison, "Woolworth to Close Counter: Food Sale Ends For Time Being," which Harris notes errors in, an editorial titled "An Uneasy Peace" and letters to the editor from the "Public Pulse" Section.
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.
