Title:Oral history interview with Frances Lewis
Date:1989 Apr. 21

Oral history in which Frances Herbin Lewis describes her view of the transition from segregation to desegregation in Greensboro and the progress and changes made in the thirty years since the Woolworth sit-in. She recalls the sit-ins of 1960, the demonstrations of later years, and the eventual integration of public schools. She describes the part she and other students played in bringing about changes, and how black and white communities, churches, and organizations such as the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) assisted in their activities.
