Arts Discovery Educational Series Presents

February One

RECOMMENDED FOR GRADES 4-12

Monday, February 1 at 9:50am

On this remarkable day, February 1, in the year 1960, four college freshmen changed American history. This film depicts Ezell Blair, David Richmond, Franklin McCain and Joseph McNeil (the “Greensboro Four”) as they began a sit-in at a Woolworth’s lunch counter in North Carolina. The restaurant refused service to patrons of color. This demonstration is considered one of the pivotal moments in the American civil rights movement. In the film, protesters recount how the idea for the sit-in grew out of their late-night talks in campus dorms, and how the decision to act changed their lives and history forever.

Curriculum Connections: History, Government, Visual Literacy, Contextual Relevancy, Critical Response, Culture
