- This Novemebr 10, 1984 articled published in the Greensboro News & Record credits black voters in Greensboro and High Point with the election of two Democratic candidates in the 1984 Guilford County Board of Commissioners race. Democrats J. Douglas Galyon and Paul Gibson II were victorious in their bids for election, and the article states "the importance of the black vote for the two Democrats is obvious." 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 that spawned lunch counter sit-ins across the South and rejuvenated the civil rights movement.
