Civilities and Civil Rights: Greensboro, North Carolina, and the Black Struggle for Freedom

Couverture
Oxford University Press, 1981 - 282 pages
The 'sit-ins' at a Woolworth's lunch counter in Greensboro launched the passive resistance phase of the civil rights revolution. This book tells the story of what happened in Greensboro; it also tells the story in microcosm of America's effort to come to grips with our most abiding national dilemma--racism.
