Sitting In to Stand Up for Racial Equality

In 1961, nine African American students from Friendship Junior College staged a sit-in in Rock Hill, SC to protest segregated lunch counters.  They chose 30 days of hard labor over paying a fine for their actions and became known as the Friendship Nine.  W.T. “Dub” Massey, a member of the Friendship Nine, spoke to the Civil Rights Clinic’s Tiffney Love about sitting in to stand up for racial equality.  Click below to listen to the latest episode of The Legal Dose.
