Description: This article reports on the mass demonstrations protesting segregation in Greensboro, NC on May 15, 1963. Included in the article is a description of the scene and the protest at the S&W Cafeteria as the largest in the area. Hundreds of students were arrested during these demonstrations and while the article focuses mainly on the “Negroes” and stated that all of the students at the S&W Cafeteria protest were North Carolina A&T State university students, it does add at the very end that four white college students were arrested as well. These four white college students included Huldah “Beth” Taylor who was a student at Guilford College, though her name and school are never mentioned in the account.
