Alabama State University Student Sit-In Protests of 1960

Video Overview
On February 1, 1960 four black students at North Carolina A&T University went to the F.W. Woolworth store to order food and decided to ‘sit down’ and eat rather that stand up. This decision to ‘sit down’ sparked a massive new movement in support of civil and economic rights . For the first time, students made an independent decision, on their own, to actively oppose segregation. Soon the movement spread to Montgomery where Alabama State U niversity became the focal point of the entire ‘sit-in’ movement in Alabama.
