Description:

This notice of a 1984 awards banquet where twenty-three individuals were to be recognized for having fostered the “justice, peace, equality, understanding and love which was the spirit of the 1960 sit-ins,” was published in the Greensboro News & Record on January 29, 1984. The banquet was organized by the February One Society, a non-profit organization that originally formed in 1979 to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the February 1, 1960 Woolworth lunch counter sit-ins by four black North Carolina A&T College students.


This article was clipped and saved in a scrapbook by Clarence “Curly” Harris, manager of the Greensboro Woolworth store at the time of the sit-ins.
