Date: February 1, 1973

Author: Harvey Harris

Additional contributor:


In this February 1, 1973 Greensboro Daily News article, Harvey Harris reports on an upcoming ABC News telecast entitled, Whatever Happened to the Greensboro 4. Filming for this telecast reunited the four original participants of the sit-ins at the Greensboro Woolworth lunch counter in 1960. Sit-in participant David Richmond was interviewed for this piece and saw the telecast as an opportunity to tell millions of Americans how much could be accomplished through non-violent demonstrations.

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.
