RESOLUTION “Recognizing the High Point Sit-in" WHEREAS, segregation existed in North Carolina for more than two hundred years, where black children and adults could not eat at certain restaurants or shop at certain stores, where black students were not allowed an equal opportunity to receive a quality elementary and secondary education and were not allowed to attend many colleges and universities and did not have the same access to higher education as white students; and, WHEREAS, fifty years ago, on February 11, 1960, twenty-six brave high school students from William Penn High School and High Point High School staged a sit-in at the F.W. Woolworth store on South Main Street in High Point; and, WHEREAS, the students met at the Fourth Street YMCA/YWCA after school and marched to the Woolworth’s store, entered the store and sat down at the “white’s only” lunch counter, and amid the uproar that ensued, continued their calm and nonviolent protest; and, WHEREAS, on that day, these courageous students orchestrated the first Civil Rights Movement protest held by high school students; and, WHEREAS, their brave actions led the way for civil rights and equality across the state and country in the early days of the Civil Rights Movement. THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Guilford County Board of Education commemorates and celebrates the 50th anniversary of the High Point sit-in, and honors those students who steadfastly and resolutely stood together to demand equality in High Point and across the United States of America. This is the 9th day of February 2010. The Guilford County Board of Education By: Its: Chairman
