- This article, published in the Greensboro News & Record, describes a reunion of the four North Carolina A&T State University students who participated in the 1960 sit-ins at a Woolworth lunch counter in Greensboro. Twenty-five years after sit-ins, the four returned to Greensboro to commemorate the experience and offer updates on their lives. At the time this article was written, Ezell Blair, Jr., then 43—who had become Muslim and changed his name to Jibreel Khazan—was living in New Bedford, Massachusetts and working as a teacher for the mentally handicapped. Franklin McCain, then 43, was working as a corporate executive for Celanese Corporation and residing near Charlotte. Joe McNeil, then 42, was serving in the Air Force Reserves in Hempstead, New York. Finally, David Richmond, then 43, was living in his native Greensboro and working as a housekeeping porter. 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.
