Exhibition | DON'T YOU SIT DOWN

An interactive exhibition, Don't You Sit Down: Shades of Jim Crow, 1960– explores racism in the US originating with Jim Crow laws from the post-Civil War era that legalized racial segregation. It was inspired by the 1960 Greensboro Sit-in in which four Black college students—Ezell Blair, Franklin McCain, David Richmond and Joseph McNeil—sat at the counter of a Woolworth store in Greensboro, NC and asked to be served.
