Significant anniversary

Fifty years ago today...at 4th and Liberty in Winston-Salem...a black man ate lunch at the Woolworth's lunch counter. The blog joined local politicos and educators, including Wake Forest President Nathan Hatch, for a short commemoration at the Urban League. A nice touch: Hatch read the names of the participating Winston-Salem State Teachers' College students, while Chancellor Donald Reaves of Winston-Salem State University read the names of the Wake Forest College students who joined them in their protest.
