The International Civil Rights Center & Museum (ICRCM) is located in the heart of downtown Greensboro in the former F.W. Woolworth retail store – the historic site of the sit-in movement. On February 1, 1960, four freshmen from North Carolina A&T State University sat down at the “whites only” lunch counter and challenged the laws of segregation. Their courageous actions reignited the quest for all Americans to stand up for freedom, justice and equality. ICRCM brings history to life with its permanent installation The Battlegrounds, educational exhibits, photography, artifacts, video reenactments and interactive galleries. The Museum also features a Changing Gallery, auditorium, classrooms, and the Joint Center for the Study of Human Rights. Admission fees apply.
