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), consists of a review and analysis by contributor Ann Dearsley of the Greensboro lunch counter sit-ins that began on February 1, 1960 at the city's F.W. Woolworth Store. Several WCUNC students joined the protest on its third day, prompting Chancellor Gordon W. Blackwell to call an unsuccessful meeting of all involved parties in order to negotiate a compromise. Dearsley also notes that the stores in question had decided to close their lunch counters entirely and that the movement had spread to other cities in the state.
