In this February 1980 Greensboro Daily News article, Jim Schlosser discusses Andrew Young's speech at North Carolina A&T State University commemorating the 1960 Greensboro Woolworth store sit-ins. In his speech, Young cited North Carolina politicians as a greater threat to equality than the Ku Klux Klan. Young also sent his support to the anti-Klan march and rally planned for that day, but advocated unarmed and nonviolent participation. Other topics Young addressed were reinstatement of the draft, communism, economic discrimination, traditionally black colleges, and President Jimmy Carter's reelection campaign.
The article also discusses appearances by Jibreel Khazan (Ezell Blair, Jr.), Joseph McNeil, David Richmond, and Franklin McCain (aka the Greensboro Four). McNeil is quoted as saying he and his colleagues are only symbols of a famous event that had many behind-the-scenes participants. At the event, Khazan paid tribute to Ralph Johns, who helped them through the sit-ins.
This article was clipped and saved in a scrapbook about the twentieth anniversary of the 1960 lunch counter sit-ins by Clarence “Curly” Harris, manager of the Greensboro Woolworth store at the time of the sit-ins.
