Things to do
International Civil Rights Center & Museum/Sit-In-Movement, Inc.
Located in the former F.W. Woolworth five-and-dime store at 134 S. Elm St., this must-see vital piece of history takes you on a journey into the Greensboro Sit-In protests and American Civil Rights History with vivid photography, artifacts, video reenactments, and interactive galleries. It was here that 63 years ago, four teenage NC A&T State University students, known as the “Greensboro A&T Four,” sat down here at the whites-only lunch counter and asked for service. This moment would spark America’s larger sit-in movement that ushered in a nationwide push for equality and justice for all. Today, the ICRCM serves as a crucial teaching landmark and represents one of the top sites on the U.S. Civil Rights Trail.
