- This late 1987 article by Kimberly McLarin of the Greensboro News & Record was the third in a December, 1987, four-part series on race relations in Greensboro (entitled "Two Worlds: Black & White") and focuses both on positive changes and aspects which have remained static. The article reports that community leaders believe that blacks had made political gains such as being elected to public office, but still lacked significant power and influence. Those interviewed for the article include community organizer Lewis Brandon, Guilford County Commissioner Kate Dorsett, Greensboro City Council members Earl Jones and Dorothy Bardolph, and former mayor John Forbis. This article was saved in a scrapbook by Clarence ?Curly? Harris, manager of the Greensboro Woolworth store at the time of the 1960 sit-ins.
