A Battle Royal

Record #:
June 23 was the sixtieth anniversary of the 1957 Royal Ice Cream sit-in, where seven African Americans demanded to be served inside the segregated Royal Ice Cream Parlor in north Durham and were arrested for it. The demonstration is often overlooked in civil rights history because sit-ins were not rampant at that time.
