Black History Month – Greensboro 4

la-la-me-mccain-obit-jpg-20140110 greenboro-first-day

On February 1, 1960, Joseph McNeil, Jibreel Khazan (Ezell Blair), Franklin McCain and David Richond, four African-American students of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, conducted a Sit-In at a white-only lunch counter inside a Greensboro, North Carolina Woolworth’s store. The Greensboro sit-in catalyzed a wave of nonviolent protest against private-sector segregation in the United States.

The sit-ins were successful in forcing partial integration and in increasing national awareness of the indignities suffered by African-Americans in the southern United States.

On July 26, 1960, five and a half months after the sit-in began local businesses agreed to serve African Americans alongside their white patrons. The Greensboro 4 lead the way for desegregation in North Carolina.

I personally had the honor of being taught by Jibreel Khazan (Ezell Blair) throughout 6 grade at Sgt. William H. Carney Academy, New Bedford, MA and mentored throughout my life.

Read more about Mr. Jibreel Jhazan, or as he liked to be called “Easy”, at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ezell_Blair_Jr.
