Things to do
International Civil Rights Center & Museum/Sit-In-Movement, Inc.
Located in the former F.W. Woolworth retail store at 134 S. Elm St., this must-see vital piece of history takes you on a journey into American Civil Rights History with vivid photography, artifacts, video reenactments, and interactive galleries. It was here that over 50 years ago, four teenage NC A&T State University students, know as the A7T Four, sat down here at the “Whites Only” lunch counter and began America’s sit-in movement that sparked a nationwide push for equality and justice for all. Today the ICRCM stands as a monument of courage and change.
