  1. Go Elsewhere

    The International Civil Rights Center and Museum is dedicated to the struggle of the civil rights era and an ode to the Greensboro Four’s contribution. In 1960, there were a series of nonviolent protests and sit-ins that served as a catalyst for the civil rights movement. The sit-ins happened at the former lunch counter of F.W. Woolworth’s, that is now the same building as the center. The historic site is a city and country favorite and you can’t beat the experiences you’ll have once you’re there.
