In this November 15, 1979 Greensboro Record article, Jo Spivey reports on efforts to obtain a North Carolina historical marker at the site of the 1960 Woolworth store sit-ins in Greensboro. Spivey writes that there had been earlier fears that there would not be funding for a marker because of economic constraints on the N.C. Highway Historical Marker Commission. Spivey also writes of the creation of the February 1 Committee to organize events for a celebration of the twentieth anniversary of the sit-ins. Members of the committee include Shirley Frye, Hal Sieber, Richard Moore, Manlin Forgay, Kathy Harrelson, Vance Chavis, Sol Jacobs, Alex Stoessen, and Nell Coley.
A picture of the completed historical marker is included on this scrapbook page. Both the article and picture were 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.
