50 years ago on February 1, 1960, 4 students took a stand by sitting down at a Woolworth's lunch counter in Greensboro, North Carolina to bring attention to segregation.
Tomorrow, a new museum opens at the former store. It will include 16 exhibits, plus the counter seats used by the first 4 protesters who became known as the Greensboro 4.
Fredricka Whitfield spoke with one of them by phone today about the milestone. She also interviewed one of the co-founders of the museum and his son.
