1960 Picketing

SummaryIn the 1950's to the 1960's, racial inequality was a problem. One day in February of 1960, African American students sat down at a "whites only" diner. They asked to be served but nobody would serve them. This sparked protests of all Wolworth's stores. Picketing lines were formed in front of his stores. One group of students joined the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People). Later a chain of his stores were desegregated.
