This is a dynamic virtual tour of the International Civil Rights Museum located in the historic F.W. Woolworth's five-and-dime site building. This site is a monument to the bravery visionary young advocates of full citizenship and social justice. It commemorates the Feb. 1, 1960, sit-ins at a whites-only lunch counter in Greensboro, by the N.C. A&T Four students. Their non-violent direct action challenged America to make good its promises of equality and civic inclusion enunciated in the Constitution.
This virtual tour explores the story of the civil rights struggle in the United States as part of the International Civil Rights Center & Museum's permanent galleries, The Battlegrounds. This engaging encounter includes captivating audio/video narratives, pictorial, artifacts, video re-enactments, and interactive components.
