The original portion of the lunch counter and stools where the four students sat on Feb. 1, 1960, has never been moved from its original footprint.

The A&T Four, photographed by Jack Moebes on February 1, 1960, as they left the F.W. Woolworth store in downtown Greensboro. When, they sat down and requested to be served at the store's segregated white's only lunch counter, a sit-in movement swept across the country like wildfire. Their courageous action helped to reignite the civil rights movement and bring an end to "Jim Crow" traditions. Moebes was staff photographer for the Greensboro Daily News and the Greensboro Record.
