- In this February 2, 1980 Greensboro Daily News article, Kenneth Campbell discusses the opinions of Jibreel Khazan (Ezell Blair Jr.), Joseph McNeil, Franklin McCain, and David Richmond on the current state of civil rights. Richmond believes new approaches to fighting for equality are needed. William Thomas, active during the 1963 civil rights demonstrations in Greensboro, is quoted as saying "black people do not have to be out in the streets giving up their bodies to get their rights." Thomas argues that because certain rights were gained in the sixties, blacks can now work within the system of government to make further gains. Dr. Samuel Proctor, former president of North Carolina A&T State University, is quoted as saying "we must make it indelible in this country that we believe in the dignity and worth of everybody." This article was clipped and saved in a scrapbook about the twentieth anniversary of the 1960 lunch counter sit-ins by Clarence "Curly" Harris, manager of the Greensboro Woolworth store at the time of the sit-ins.
