The South’s First Sit-In

I was interested in learning more about sit-ins in the South during the 1960s Civil Rights Movement, so I consulted one of my new favorite sources for historical context, YouTube.  Although I’ve mentioned it before, I think that this site is such a great resource because, while books can give a person the information of a particular event or time in history, YouTube gives the sounds and sights that, at least for me, bring so much more to the educational experience.  Here is a video I found on the Miami chapter of CORE and the important work of its two leaders. Some of the sound quality is not very good but, overall, it is an interesting piece.
