This weekend, the Smithsonian Channel will rebroadcast their documentary examing the sit-ins at the Greensboro Woolworth's lunch counter in 1960.
The one-hour documentary, "Seizing Justice: The Greensboro 4," tells the story of the four college freshmen from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical College -- Franklin McCain, Joseph McNeil, David Richmond and Ezell Blair, Jr. -- who led the nonviolent sit-in to make a statement that everyone should be served there. The sit-in wasn't the first of the Civil Rights Movement, but the simple actions of these four men sparked a series of events that would help put an end to the Jim Crow laws of the South.
The special airs on Saturday, February 4 at 9pm and Thursday, February 9 at 8pm. Smithsonian Channel is on Time Warner Cable digital channel 1264, DirecTV 565 and 1565, and AT&T U-Verse 118 and 1118.
If you don't have access to the Smithsonian channel, you can watch "Seizing Justice: The Greensboro 4" online at their website.
