Today: Friday, February 28 at 4:00

February 28, 2020 marks the 60th anniversary of Chapel Hill’s first sit-in protest against segregation.
Nine young men from Chapel Hill’s all-black Lincoln High School staged their sit-in at Colonial Drug,
now West End Wine Bar. Join us as the Town installs a marker commemorating this
courageous step that sparked a decade of direct-action
civil rights demonstrations in Chapel Hill.
