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.
Playing as influential a role as many better-known Civil Rights Movement leaders, Bennett’s president inspired its students to fight for social justice. She encouraged students to participate in protests, inspired by the 1960 Woolworth’s sit in, and initiate blacks to become more politically involved, by registering to vote.
