I was in college in northern California in 1967. We had protests about a different kind of injustice – the Vietnam War. On second thought, maybe it wasn’t that different.

I’m getting a bigger picture about Duke University, and Civil rights. Thanks. Always enjoyable to visit your site.

I am dating myself, but I remember this sit in. I was living in Harlem at the time. Shortly after that we lost Dr. King.
So many colleges and universities in that era faced discrimination. It is closeted in some colleges today.

It’s because of people who had sit-ins (or is it sits-in, lol?!) and stuff like that that the world began to realise that people are people, with equal needs and rights, no matter the colour of their skin. Long way to go yet, but hey!
Thanks for visiting me. Cats definitely rule! xxx
