Move forward on race

This editorial appeared in the Decemeber 17, 1987, Greensboro News & Record, and comments on the newspaper's four-day series on race relations in Greensboro. The editorial states that racism is still an issue, despite significant progress, and suggests that Greensboro needs to work on visibility for its human rights commission and to increase black involvement.

This article was clipped and saved in a scrapbook on race relations by Clarence “Curly” Harris, manager of the Greensboro Woolworth store at the time of the 1960 sit-ins that spawned lunch counter sit-ins across the South and rejuvenated the civil rights movement.
