- This brief article, published February 7, 1970, discusses the February 1, 1960 sit-in at the Greensboro Woolworth store, orchestrated by North Carolina A&T State University students David Richmond, Joseph McNeil, Franklin McCain, and Ezell Blair Jr. (now Jibreel Khzan). Richmond was interviewed for the article and says he feels protests should stay within the law and "The movement today is moving toward violence. But that's what I call the impossible revolution." The article states that the David Richmond Fund has been created to help him return to college, where he only needs twelve credits to graduate. 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.
