February One On this remarkable day in history, 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 NC. The restaurant refused service to anyone but whites, and this demonstration is considered as one of the pivotal moments in the American Civil Rights Movement.  In this film, they recount how the idea for the sit-in grew out of their late-night talks in campus dorms, and the decision to act changed their lives and our history forever.
