- Washington Post columnist Edwin M. Yoder Jr. explores the effectiveness of civil rights laws and the struggle between those who wish to strive toward a literal colorblind society and those who wish to be conscious of and accommodating to those groups that had been traditionally disadvantaged. This article was clipped and saved in a scrapbook by Clarence "Curly" Harris, manager of the Greensboro Woolworth store at the time of the 1960 sit-ins that spawned lunch counter sit-ins across the South and rejuvenated the civil rights movement. Along with the article are Harris? handwritten notes in response to this article that claim the Greensboro Woolworth store employed more blacks than the city's ratio of blacks to white and that Woolworth employed solely on the basis of merit.
