Description: This February 12, 1960, article from The Carolinian, the student newspaper of The Woman's College of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (WCUNC) gives an account of the Greensboro lunch counter sit-ins that began on February 1, 1960 at Greensboro's F.W. Woolworth store. The article notes that three WCUNC students had joined the protesters from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (A&T) and Bennett College on the fourth day of the sit-ins. There is also a mention of reaction from “anti-Negro” protesters who attempted to occupy seats before black students could get to them, of a napkin burning incident.
