|Title:||Oral history interview with Colvin Leonard|
|Date:||1989 May 28|
Oral history in which Colvin Theodore Leonard recalls race relations in Greensboro from the late 1940s through the 1960s. He describes being at the Woolworth's lunch counter when the February 1, 1960 sit-in occurred, and how at the time it did not seem like a dramatic, historic event. He provides a few details of demonstrations and pickets, commends the police department for maintaining peace, and describes his personal relationships and experiences with blacks.
