The nationally recognized Civil Rights Movement was represented locally by events such as the 1957 sit-in at Durham’s Royal Ice Cream Company, led by the Rev. Douglas Moore, and the 1960 Woolworth sit-in led by a quartet of AT&T students. Protests such as these planted seeds of justice that, decades later, is bearing fruit for both blacks and whites.
