Global Issues - Black History Month



On Feb. 1, 1960, four students from all-black North Carolina Agricultural and Technical College walked into a Woolworth five-and-dime with the intention of ordering lunch, but the manager of the Greensboro store had his own intentions.  Those four young men stood their ground yet shoved history forward.


Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month.  As SASFAA, we recognize, embrace, and celebrate our members.  Our many similarities coupled with our differences make us, as an association, who we are today--a united membership moving history forward in hopes of better futures for our students and lives we touch.



“Despite advances in the fight for racial equality (including the landmark 1954 Supreme Court verdict in Brown v. Board of Education and the Montgomery Bus Boycott), segregation was still the norm across the southern United States in 1960. Early that year, a non-violent protest by young African-American students at a segregated Woolworth’s lunch counter in Greensboro, North Carolina, sparked a sit-in movement that soon spread to college towns throughout the region. Though many of the protesters were arrested for trespassing, disorderly conduct or disturbing the peace, their actions made an immediate and lasting impact, forcing Woolworth’s and other establishments to change their segregationist policies.”
