Plaque commemorates 1960 Woolworth’s sit-in

On July 26, 1960, a group of black youths sat at the lunch counter in Woolworth’s, a chain department store formerly located along Main Street in Spartanburg, to protest the store’s all-white lunch counter service policy. The sit-in occurred after a vote by Spartanburg City Council the night before that outlawed sit-ins in the Upstate city and one day after the first Woolworth’s lunch counter sit-in in Greensboro, N.C.
