The lunch counter movement was notorious for sparking a revolution in justifying the fact that separation does not mean equality.

    A hush falls over the small diner. One man sits with his sandwich suspended halfway to his mouth as his jaw drops open in shock while another woman stands up so abruptly that her milkshake plunges off the table in an apparent attempt to evade the ensuing conflict. The four African-American college students sit at the Whites-Only lunch counter in Woolworth’s that February 1, 1960, appearing almost serene in their act of civil disobedience. The 1960 Lunch Counter Sit-Ins are one of the most…

    handwriting and I look at hers now, they’re vastly different. They’re both cursive, but any similarities end there. I took something I didn’t like about myself, and instead of hiding it and allowing it to be underdeveloped, I developed it into something I knew I could be proud of.

    rightfully so I was a bit over dramatic, she yelled back, “Okay, see you later.” “Bye,” I said. “Goodbye,” dad said. And we were off. When we got to the clinic had to sit in the waiting room.
