- This article by Tom Steadman appeared in the December 13, 1987, Greensboro News & Record, and reports on a poll on racial attitudes in the Greensboro area. Among the key findings were that 78% of blacks and 50% of whites believed that school integration had been a good thing, that 59% of blacks and 22% of whites wanted more integration, 81% of blacks and 54% of whites preferred racially-mixed neighborhoods, and 47% of blacks and 24% of whites believed that housing available to blacks was inferior. Two pages of tables with more detailed results accompany the article, which was part of a multi-part series in December, 1987, entitled Two Worlds: Black & White. This article was clipped and saved in a scrapbook on race relations 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.
