This object-based learning activity revolves around the Greensboro, North Carolina lunch counter that was the site of a sit-in strike by four African-American students in 1960. In this section of "The Object of History'' , a cooperative project between the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History and George Mason University's Center for History and New Media, students will learn how the sit-in strike at the Woolworth's lunch counter sparked the widespread student activism that was at the heart of the Civil Rights movement. After exploring the lunch counter and its importance as a source of historical information, students will visit the forum section of the site to hear NMAH curators and historians discuss the object and then use what they have learned to complete the Virtual Exhibit Activity.
