Charles O. Bess
Charles O. Bess worked as a busboy in the F. W. Woolworth store in Greensboro from 1956 to 1961. He was working the day the Greensboro Four began the sit-in at the store's lunch counter on February 1, 1960. Bess is pictured on the front page of the February 2, 1960 edition of the Greensboro Record newspaper, standing behind the lunch counter.
