- This February 12, 1991 letter from Clarence "Curly" Harris to Greensboro News & Record editor David DuBuisson, questions details about the 1960 sit-ins presented in a February 10, 1991 editorial entitled "The descent into 'multiculturalism.'' The editorial, included as a clipping, mentions the 1960 sit-ins in the Greensboro Woolworth store Harris managed at the time. Harris challenges DuBuisson's information about the duration of the protests and questions why the DuBuisson shows a "lack of respect" for the F.W. Woolworth Co. by calling it a "dime store." Harris also refutes a statement in the editorial that protesters had a victory dinner at the Mayfair Cafeteria, stating that its owner, Boyd Morris, actually closed the cafeteria rather than serve blacks.
