This circa February 4, 1990, article from the Greensboro News & Record, profiles George Simkins, former president of the Greensboro chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). In a first-person narrative, Simkins recalls the early moments of the 1960 Greensboro sit-ins, including the critical reaction he received for not calling the national NAACP office. He also states that the movement was a success due specifically to the student involvement and their sheer numbers. He mentions Jesse Jackson's visit during the 1963 demonstrations in which the Greensboro S&W Cafeteria and several theatres were integrated.
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. It appears that portions of the article may be missing.
