Description: Museum centered around the 1960 Woolworth Lunchcounter Sit-ins in downtown Greensboro. The sit-in act in Greensboro started a nationwide sit-in movement and also kicked off the civil rights movement of the 1960s. The museum has civil rights artifacts from around the country including a shard of glass from the Birmingham church bombing and a rocking chair Martin Luther King Jr sat in while he was in court. The pen the Lyndon B Johnson used to sign the civil rights act is also in the museum. There were efforts to bring the actual Rosa Parks bus to be permanently put on display here.
History: The museum is located in the historic Woolworh building in downtown Greensboro
