Description

Ezell Blair, Jr. (now Jibreel Khazan), David Richmond, Franklin McCain and Joseph McNeil (the Greensboro Four) began a sit-in at a diner in Greensboro, North Carolina. This act of simply sitting down to order food in a restaurant that refused to serve anyone but whites is now widely regarded as a pivotal point for the American Civil Rights Movement.

Offering a close look at the four young men whose courageous act changed accommodation customs and laws in North Carolina and served as a blueprint for the wave of non-violent protests that swept across the South and the nation throughout the 1960s, FEBRUARY ONE: The Story of the Greensboro Four explores how these idealistic college students inspired each another to stage the sit-in, and how that historical act has impacted their lives.
