RIP Franklin McCain

Feb. 1, 1960:  Franklin McCain, along with three other students, went to the Woolworth’s and sat at the lunch counter.  They were refused service.  Each day they returned with more people.  Across the nation, others staged sit-ins as well.

He was one of the Greensboro Four.  Story here.
