This editorial from the February 1, 1990, issue of the Greensboro News & Record, commemorates the thirtieth anniversary of the Greensboro lunch counter sit-ins. The editorial notes that the sit-ins were part of a larger movement, one that had transformed the south and was even responsible for “the South's new economic power”, but concludes that there was still work to be done with respect to racism and bigotry.

This article was saved in a scrapbook by Clarence “Curly” Harris, manager of the Greensboro Woolworth store at the time of the 1960 sit-ins.
