About the Show
We Shall Not Be Moved – The Student Sit-ins of 1960
It’s 1960 in North Carolina, and everyone knows that only white people can eat at lunch counters. But four young African Americans change what “everybody knows” by taking the radical move of sitting at a lunch counter and asking for a cup of coffee. What happened next changed history.
